I just updated with a few new tributes, and some fixed links.
Thanks to Darryl for getting a post up yesterday. What with work, moving, and a few memorial ceremonies on the drumline with the pipe band, I just haven’t had much free time in the last few weeks. So thanks, for taking care of that.
If you have written a new tribute, if I have the wrong link, or if for some reason I’m missing your link, be sure to leave a comment and let me know.
When I get up tomorrow morning I’ll write a real 11th anniversary post.
Right now, I just wanted to apologize to all of you who are leaving comments or sending me emails with updated or new tribute links. Work has been crazy these last two weeks and the pipe and drum band is getting ready for a competition this weekend, so even my hobby is keeping me busy.
I will get to updating the list with all of the hard work you’ve put in, but it’s just not going to happen by tomorrow.
We’re entering into the final stretch and it is only a matter of hours until we’re at the 11th Anniversary. I thought that I’d take a little time to tell you where we are and share some of my thoughts.
At the moment there are 7 people that have joined the Project 2996 group board @ Pinterest and we have over 300 pins! Some people have taken the challange and pinned 10 or more or have created pins for all of the people that they have created tributes. Of those 300+ pins there are a couple of repetitons and a few that aren’t pins of the victims, but we have more than 10% of the victims represented by pins! The board is being followed by more than 460 people. These are all little victories and I’m indeed proud of everyone that has participated and will still participate!
The big goal that I had when I started this project was that we would have a pin for all of the victims and as a secondary goal I wanted to see that there was a tribute for every victims (as has always been a goal of Project 2996)! We haven’t reached either of these goals yet but as time is running out I say let’s go out with a bang! Let’s see how much we can do in the remaining hours! If you’ve been sitting on the sidelines, jump in, the water isn’t that cold!
For some other Little Victories, we can still do a lot of things. Let’s see what we can do of the following small goals:
- 1000+ followers of the group board
- 100 repins of our pins into other people’s own boards
- 100 comments on the pins in our board
- 100 members of the board
- 100 likes of the board
- 100 likes of the pins
- 1000 likes of Project 2996 in Facebook
I’m looking forward to see what we’re going to accomplish before tomorrow is over. Tell you family, friends, and people you meet about Project 2996. Commit to creating 10 pins for victims without pins (more tributes would be great as well). Let’s make the 11th Anniversary something special.

P.s. I’ve spent a lot of hours over the pat weekend putting together a list of victims that have been pinned and those that still need to be pinned. The list started out as a copy of the Tribute list and I went through adding links to the victims where there is a pin. I managed to get things in somewhat of an order for all of the flights and the Pentagon, but World Trade Center is still chaotic. Getting the list together is very manually intensive. I can say that everyone that has a pin (at the time of my last update) has been noted, the alphabetical order is not always obvious and especially in the World Trade Center lists, some people are listed contained in the wrong list. The best thing to do is to use Control F to search for names.

Hello everyone! I just thought that I’d give you a quick update. Above is a screencapture of part of the Pinterest Group Board. Dale has created ‘pins’ for all of the people he did tributes for, I’ve pinned all of the people that I did tributes for and then I’ve made a pass through the victims at the Pentagon and am about to start with the victims of the different flights. Does anyone want to create some pins for any of World Trade Center victims or any of the victims of any of the flights? Let us know your Pinterest user name and we’ll invite you to the group board. Below you can see a couple of recent pins.

We have a few members in the group board but it would be great to hit a significant number like 100 or even if everyone that has liked us on Facebook. You can ‘Repin’ pins that are already in the board into boards of your own as well as liking and commenting on them too. Be sure to check out the group board on Pinterest. Don’t forget that we still need more than 1200 tributes.
