The Paperclip Campaign
Sunday, April 27 - Sunday, May 4
Join HMTC as we support the paperclip campaign. What began as a grassroots movement to collect 6 million paperclips in honor of the 6 million Jewish victims of the Holocaust has blossomed into a wonderful remembrance project. The paperclip campaign advocates the remembrance of Holocaust victims along with taking a stand against intolerance by wearing a symbolic paperclip.
