Christmas From Heaven by Tom Brokaw

Gail Halvorson, a young pilot in the U.S. Army Air Corp. was assigned as a cargo pilot to the Berlin Airlift. After offering chewing gum to German children, an idea grew to “bomb” Berlin with candy. Fashioning small parachutes, he and his crew sent them floating down! Lt. Halvorson became known as “The Candy Bomber.” His act became a symbol of hope not only to German children but to all who yearned for freedom. Craft supplies needed: coffee filter, string, tape, colored tissue paper.
