I met this woman, Wendy Torrel, last month quite casually and for a
completely different situation.
After 9/11 she wrote a children's book, "Guardian of Dreams" to help
dispel nightmares. This is an amazing story about a Guardian Horse
who chases away nightmares. Unfortunately Sandy Hook has brought the
book back into the limelight.
She is working with grief counselers and is donating many of her
books to school and public libraries trying to help the other 500
children in the area. She is trying to provide each of those
children with their own copy.
Along those lines she is working to design a pin that may be given
to a child as a talisman as constant reinforcement to the story.
Here is a great opportunity for an Orchid member. Can you provide a
wax master of the pin portraying the horse logo? Or, do you have
casting capabilities and can provide service or a good discount?
She is hoping for donations to be able to provide more children with
the book and/or pin.
An image of the horse and all contact as well as a
youtube clip from a CNN interview can be found on the website:
