We give blood, we
make a donation, we volunteer our time. We try in any small way to help the victims of
this terrible tragedy that has overwhelmed our nation. Our littlest citizens need to help
also. That's why we at MakingFriends.com have set up a program that is appropriate for
even very young children to lend their support.
Here, on Long Island, many of our friends and family have been
personally touched by the attack on the World Trade Center. Many of them are children who
have lost parents or they have parents participating in the rescue effort. Either way,
they are children in crises.
Our children can help in a special way by sending them a message of
love and support. Our program is simple. Help your children, class, troop or group make
patriotic paper doll "Friends". Have children attach a message along with their
first name, age, city & state. Send the paper "Friends" to us and we will
distribute them to schools, firehouses and hospitals throughout the metropolitan area.
You'll need paper, glue and scissors. Everything else is online.
Just click on the links below. If you have older children who would like to get involved,
we have a program for them also. Click here for
