Support Newtown and Sandy Hook

I am so overwhelmed with the amount of bloggers I have found support Newtown and Sandy Hook in their time of need. I love seeing how people from all across the world are willing to take the time to do a good deed especially around the busy holiday season. I have said from the moment my family and I started brainstorming on ways to help ... "This is the right thing to do!" No one should question that or have a problem contributing even if it's just a penny! A handful of spare change can add up fast!

Here's a list of ways you can help and show your support for Newtown and Sandy Hook!

There's a great group of bloggers that have set up the event Cookies & Crafts for Sandy Hook. If you are interested in participating in this blog event or would like to learn about Etsy shop that are donating part of their sales to go to the communities, please visit Crazy for Crust's Blog!

If you are looking for a fun winter craft to do with your kids over Christmas Break, please consider making snowflakes and sending them to support Sandy Hook's Winter Wonderland! The students from Sandy Hook Elementary will be attending a new school soon, and these snowflakes will cover the walls in their new school! It's such a great way to show your support! If you'd like more information about this project, jump on over to All for the Bolys Blog!

The United Way of Western Connecticut has also set up a fund that you can donate to to help out the families and communities effected by the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings. If you can give to this wonderful fun, please consider doing so. For more information and to get all the details on how to donate, please visit the Sandy Hook School Support Fund.

The Connecticut Yankee Council BSA has set up a fund to support the families of the two Cub Scouts killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Pack 170 was deeply effected by the lose of two of their Scouts, siblings of other Scouts, and children of Den Leaders within their pack. I personally emailed their council about this, and a representative from their council is going to hand delivery all cards and things sent for the families to Pack 170. If you would like to send donations or just a card to let the families know they are in your prayers, please visit the Connecticut Yankee Council's Volunteer Page.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day and God Bless everyone who has and continues to support the Newtown and Sandy Hook communities! They all need our thoughts and prayers if nothing else!

Talk to everyone soon!
