You’re invited to join in writing activity!
TAKE ACTION: WRITE OR CREATE A WONDERFUL PIECE OF ART — AUGUST 31, 2015 – SEPTEMBER 5, 2015
What: Our vision is to send loving, supportive and encouraging letters to those affected by the loss of loved ones on 9/11. We invite everyone from our local communities to either write a note or create a nice colorful drawing in remembrance of the tragedy that occurred on September 11.
How: Write your letter, or create your piece of art to Commemorate 9/11 (September 11). Drop it off, or mail the letter to one of the addresses below. Please mark the envelopes with #Chi2NYC. Our volunteer group will package all letters on Sept 6, and ship them to our counterparts and supporters in NYC for the September 11th memorial.
Please utilize and share the hashtag #Chi2NYC on social media — art, inspiration, encouragement and love from “friends” in Chicago to “friends” in New York.
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller
