The Butterfly Project

The Holocaust Museum in Houston is collecting 1.5 million handmade butterflies for their "I Never Saw Another Butterfly" exhibit set to open in spring 2012.

We will be collecting butterflies to send in for this cause through the end of the year at least. They are requesting that the butterflies be submitted by June 30, 2011. We may wind up sending in multiple lots. :)

From their website:
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.
