I just came across this project by the Holocaust Museum Houston – The Butterfly Project. They’re collecting 1,500,000 paper butterflies to remember the children that suffered and died during Holocaust.  they already received about 400,000 and plan to reach the goal of 1,500,000 by June 30, 2012.

If you can, please send or deliver paper butterflies by June 30, 2012 to

Holocaust Museum Houston
Butterfly Project
Education Department
5401 Caroline St.
Houston, TX 77004
USA

I saw this in Quilling with Whimsiquills blog, which shows some of the quilled butterflies she’s planning to send.

Follow this on Facebook – Fairyland forum and The Fairy Sisterhood.

Here’s the content from HMH site:

In an effort to remember them, Holocaust Museum Houston is collecting 1.5 million handmade butterflies.

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.

Please facilitate the “I Never Saw Another Butterfly” activity and create as many handmade arts-and-crafts butterflies as possible. This project may be completed by all ages as individuals or groups.

  • Butterflies should be no larger than 8 inches by 10 inches.
  • Butterflies may be of any medium the artist chooses, but two-dimensional submissions are preferred.
  • Glitter should not be used.
  • Food products (cereal, macaroni, candy, marshmallows or other perishables) also should not be used.
  • If possible, e-mail a photograph of your butterflies, to butterflyproject@hmh.org.

by June 30, 2012, with the following information included:

  • Your name,
