I was Thinking ....... What a wonderful thing to create!

1,500,000 innocent Children died in the Holocaust

In an effort to remember them, Holocaust Museum Houston is collecting 1.5 million handmade butterflies. http://www.hmh.org/ed_butterfly1.shtml


The butterflies will eventually comprise a breath-taking exhibition, currently scheduled for Spring 2013, for all to remember. The Museum has already collected an estimated 400,000 butterflies.


I was thinking that maybe some of you would like to creat a beautiful butterfly and send it the museum. You can create as many handmade arts-and-crafts butterflies as possible. This project may be completed by all ages as individuals or groups.
  1. Butterflies should be no larger than 8 inches by 10 inches.
  2. Butterflies may be of any medium the artist chooses, but two-dimensional submissions are preferred.
  3. Glitter and all glitter-related products should not be used.
  4. Food products (cereal, macaroni, candy, marshmallows or other perishables) also should not be used.
  5. If possible, e-mail a photograph of your butterflies, to butterflyproject@hmh.org.


Mail or bring your butterflies to:
