Giving Back: Thinking Of Sandy Hook

A little over a week has passed since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary.  I hope that this horrific event still is in your thoughts, prayers and hearts this holiday season.  As we gather with our families, take a moment to think of the families who are missing a loved one this year.. not just from this tragedy, but from every imaginable way, from our fallen soldiers, to the mother who lost her battle with cancer to the families of those lost in accidents all year long.

If you would like to take some time to contribute, here are some ways that you can show your condolences and thoughts are with the victims & families of the Sandy Hook tragedy:

Send a Message of Condolence - The US Postal Service has established a unique PO Box to allow the public to send condolences to those affected.  Send your cards and messages here:

Make a Snowflake for Sandy Hook Elementary’s New Home - The PTSA is hoping to line the walls of the new home for Sandy Hook Elementary School students with snowflakes when they return to school in January.  You can send your snowflakes by January 12th to this address:

Participate in #26Acts - Ann Curry sent out a message via social media earlier in the week asking people to complete Random Acts of Kindness in honor of students and faculty who died at Sandy Hook Elementary.  You can post about how you have participated by posting on the 26 Acts of Kindness page on Facebook or by Tweeting using #26Acts.  Find out more about this movement here–> 26 Acts of Kindness
