This is just one of a handful of relief funds set up for the families of the victims in yesterday's massacre in Connecticut.
I know that it's Christmas, and we aren't all exactly all swimming in extra cash, but you don't need to give a lot to make a difference. Every small donation goes somewhere, and they do add up quickly. This Christmas, when we are all with the ones we love, these families will be mourning; most of them will be mourning the loss of a child who is not too much older than my son.
Whether you donate to this fund, or another, the money will be going toward things like grief counseling, funeral costs, scholarship funds for Sandy Hook students, and even meals for the affected families (they have a lot going on right now, obviously, and that's just one more way to lend a hand.)
Christmas is the season of giving, so let's embrace that. Unfortunately, we live in a world where this kind of thing can happen any time, any where, to anybody. It could just as easily happened to any of us. While it breaks my heart to even think of it, I should hope that if myself or anybody that I care about were affected by a tragedy like this; somebody would be there to help.
