CNN PRODUCER NOTE Zombianca, a recruiter in Los Angeles told me, 'My job just finished up a fundraiser for hurricane Sandy and our annual Toys for Tots drive, so when Sandy Hook happened, I could tell people wanted to help... but were a little financially zapped by this point. Also, this is such an overwhelming tragedy, what can you do? It's important to remember that there were survivors that need help too, so when I found out that the Newtown PTA was looking for snowflakes, I thought it would be a great way for people to get involved, send a personal message, and have fun in a time where things aren't so fun.'
