In case you haven't heard, I wanted to bring to your attention this campaign. It is called 600 Monsters Strong for Connecticut and it is a knitting/crochet group for a crafty act of love donation for the month of January. There's a Facebook page, but it is essentially a Ravelry group of needle workers vowing to send little monsters to cheer up the students of Sandy Hook Elementary.
There's already a list of approved monsters for either knit or crochet, and you can make your own if you want as long as you meet the guidelines. I might make a couple little Cthulhus, but I might also make Lark the Monster from the pre-approved list. I made a button to share in case any one else wants a pretty button:
The textbox links directly to the group Ravelry page. Start your monsters now. They must be received in Ohio by January 31st! (There's a UK donation contact, too.)
