Things You Can Do For Newtown..

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

I think each one of us is thinking about Connecticut a lot right now. We are all hearing the 24 hour news coverage and kids are being laid to rest all week. Its completely awful. We have all lifted that entire community in our prayers but there are a few other ways you can show your love. 

how to cut the perfect snowflake

When the children of Sandy Hook Elementary go back to school, the National Parent Teacher Association wants them to be greeted by a winter wonderland. You and your child can help welcome the students back to school, which will be in a new building, bymaking unique snowflakes! The snowflakes are due by January 12. 

- My family is doing this.. my kids are doing this.. and I think we will have a little station set up over Christmas so anyone who wants to make a snowflake...can. and then I will mail them all off at the beginning of January. -

 Please send them to:

Connecticut PTSA
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 103 Hamden, CT 06514



 You can also share your kind words of condolence by sending the community of Newtown a condolence letter:

Message of Condolence
PO Box 3700
Newtown, CT 06470

- We are sending a Jaggers Family condolence card in the coming days -

Some of the victim’s families have also set up specific pages for you to leave condolences online. Click on the names to leave your thoughts for the family of Dawn HochsprungEmilie ParkerNoah Pozner and Benjamin Wheeler


Messages are also being collected here on Evergram. They will be given to the family at a later date. 
If you have a blog, write about a cookie recipe or craft and include a tribute to the victims. You can find other people's blog post through the Twitter hashtag #BloggersForSandyHook

- For Sure doing this too. - 

I think we all should take a couple minutes of our busy lives and send out the love to this broken community. Each one of us from near and far can send in a snowflake to make it feel more like a winter wonderland instead of a place of horror. And your kids can participate. This community seen the worst kind of evil. We all need to lift them up and show them that the lives gone too soon will never be forgotten and that we survive this tragedy.
