2. I've seen this a few times now on various blogs I read and I decided to explore more thoroughly.
The Butterfly Project,
hosted by the Holocaust Museum in Houston, Texas
The museum is planning an exhibition to be held in the spring of 2013 to honour the 1,500,000 (yes, you read that right) innocent children who perished in the Holocaust. They are hoping to collect 1.5 million handmade butterflies for the exhibition. More information can be found here, along with how you can donate one (or as many as you'd like). I simply cannot get my head around that many children losing their lives and I think this is a fantastic way to help to remember them. Won't you consider joining in?
