Buttons for a Memorial

I just had the pleasure of stuffing a box full of as many vintage buttons as I could, as a donation to the California Holocaust Education and Resource Center.  The organization is building a memorial to the 6 million Holocaust victims out of buttons and are collecting that many!
 In these bags there are some very fun buttons mixed in with some very common ones; all are vintage.
Believe it or not, I managed to get ALL the buttons shown above into the box!
At some point, the Center will add them to their count; I can't even guess how many there are -- but it is definitely in the thousands!
They are only looking for very large quantity donations of buttons; if you can help, contact the California Holocaust Education and Resource Center on their page.  I know they'll be glad to hear from you!
I'm excited to see how the buttons will eventually be used to create the memorial!

What an interesting idea and a worthy cause. I am a beginning button collector so I probably don't have enough at this point to contribute, but I'll be interested to know how the memorial turns out when finished.

Thanks for sharing this information.
