One of my blogging friends, Greg (Blandly Urbane of Demediacratic Nation fame) sent me an email telling me he had made a snowflake! Well! Following the link I found a Salvation Army site, hosted by Popular Front, using Flash to allow visitors to create their own snowflake, append a message, and email it to other folks. This is a charity site, for those so inclined, and they are raising money for their charitable works. It ain't bell-ringing, but it's very clever, and all in support of a good cause.
It only allows so many email addresses, so if you wish to send a snowflake to a lot of people, you need to make more than one snowflake!
If you put your mouse over a tagged snowflake, it gets bigger, shows you the name of its creator, and you then have the option of leaving a reply. It's cute!
I emailed a few folks before I realized I'd reached the limit of email addies I could add. So I got to thinking and decided to capture the screen images and shrink them so I could post them right here. That way if you are nervous about How To Make A Snowflake, you have some idea of how it works. Kind of like a snowflake tutorial!
Feel free to make a few of your own and send them off. Also, if the Spirit moves you, donate to the Salvation Army right on the site. These folks are among the Good Guys.
Hey, give it a try! Let your kids or grandkids take a shot at it, too. When you are through, surf on over to the Demediacratic Nation and visit Greg. Tell him benning sentcha! You'll enjoy his site. I do.
