Answering the call by the National PTA and the Connecticut PTSA, SCV-based Karma Talent Management is partnering with C.A.R.E. Learning Academy, to make snowflakes for the new Sandy Hook Elementary School location. These Parent/Teacher Associations have requested that children across the country create paper snowflakes to decorate "every inch" of their new elementary school location, where a "winter wonderland" will greet the students as they start school at brand new location. C.A.R.E. Learning Academy's goal is to collect 1,000 snowflakes from Santa Clarita residents to send to Connecticut.

Starting today and continuing through January 3, all Santa Clarita Valley students and their parents are invited to make and decorate snowflakes and drop them at C.A.R.E. Learning Academy located at 26370 Diamond Place, Santa Clarita CA, 91350, suite #502, 661-255-2223. The Learning Academy will box and ship the snowflakes to Connecticut on Thursday, January 3.

Karma Talent Management, which represents many young actors in the Santa Clarita Valley, is excited about this joint venture. "We all know that no two snowflakes are alike, as are no two children; they can be any color: decorated or plain; large or small; paper or fabric ... if you can create it, it can be sent," said Karen D'Amico, co-owner of Karma Talent Management.

The C.A.R.E. Learning Center, a hybrid school combining a private school, homeschool and tutoring center will use this as a learning experience for their students. Marni Morse, the School Director said, "Academically, making paper snowflakes will provide us a creative introduction to the science of snow, a subject with which our California kids are largely unfamiliar. But, more importantly, this snowflake drive is a lesson and a chance for our kids to be compassionate citizens, to take an active part in doing for others, to be the change we all want to see in the world."
