The Butterfly Project

Middle school students in Rowan County will participate in The Butterfly Project, which remembers children lost in the holocaust. Each student will receive a ceramic butterfly to paint and also a bio card of a child who perished. A donation of $2 covers the cost for 1 child to participate. A donation of $1,200 covers the cost for a middle school.

The butterflies will be on display at the 49 Days of Gratitude closing ceremony on March 30 at North Rowan High School. They will be used to create several permanent art installations throughout Rowan County that share The Butterfly Project’s message with the community and honor of the children whose lives were lost in the Holocaust. The installations will include a copy of The Butterfly Project’s memorial plaque to share the message of remembrance and hope.
