thanks to sarah, i learned about Operation: Friendship for Newtown and loved the idea. lynzy of sparkling footsteps created a program to collect green and white friendship bracelets and notes for the kids in newtown.
what happened has been on my mind a lot and i was really excited about being able to help in some small way. making bracelets seemed like the perfect project for Christmas vacation and my little sister even helped out by writing a note for the kids.
if you're like me and totally forgot or never knew how to make a friendship bracelet, the Operation: Friendship facebook page has video tutorials! i used a 4-string tutorial and it was easy-peasy. all you need is embroidery floss from a craft store and a piece of tape and lynzy will take care of collecting all the bracelets and notes to send in one big package.
