    The other night at Stamp Club, someone was saying she had so many buttons she couldn't buy another one, although the ones she had were too big to use on a card. Seems like lots of us have that problem about a lot of things. :rotfl:

    Anyway, this morning I saw this post on Split coast stampers.

    I thought what a brilliant idea, so I posted it on two peas. Someone was concerned that the temple website didn't mention the button collection, so I called them.

    Now, I'm not Jewish, so I didn't quite know what to expect, but anyway, I talked to Rabbi Cynthia - Sweet Lady! their website is outdated because they are a small congregation and turns out the ladies have been collecting buttons for years for their project - they have about 100,000 out of the 6 million they need. The youth group counts them. She says they would LOVE to be deluged with buttons!

    Then, I thought of you guys. If you have any unused buttons in your stash, maybe you'd like to send them on to the ladies (and keep the youth group usefully occupied)!

    I thought I had SO many. Only 1.5 pounds.:(

    I just weeded out a ton of buttons and brads. I can pull the buttons back out for sure. Thanks Linda!

    DS16 and I visited the Holocaust Museum in DC on his class trip, moving museum, we ended up spending a lot of time there.

    Have any of you watched the documentary called Paperclips? A school collected Paperclips to represent the amount of people who lost their lives in the holocaust. It was so moving. I will be sending some buttons for this cause. Thank you for posting this.

    I'll have a look for some to send - can't send too many because of the weight, but I'm sure I can put together a packet for this cause.:thumbsup2
