Stop Hate. Starting Here.

Here's some info about a very interesting art project you can participate in. 
It's called "The Butterfly Project" hosted by The Holocaust Museum Houston in Texas, USA.
Their mission is as follows:
The Holocaust Museum Houston is dedicated to educating people about the Holocaust, remembering the 6 million Jews and other innocent victims and honoring the survivors' legacy. Using the lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides, we teach the dangers of hatred, prejudice and apathy.
And the tag line following it reads:

Stop Hate. Starting Here.

The project is about remembering the children that lost their lives in that terrible time in history.

Trudi Sissons - Two Dresses Studio is putting her own spin on it for another unique way to participate.  Click here to find the info.

You can also find links on Trudis' blog to the info about the original project and the Holocaust Musuem Houston.

I hope you'll think about participating in Trudi's project!

By following and reading Seth Apters' blog The Altered Page is where I learned of this project.  You can see his blog here
Thanks Seth, for always being a great source of information!
