For all of us hurting to do "something", I'm proud to share an effort started to my former teammate. #SandyHook  See more

"In every community, there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart, there is power to do it."

-Marianne Williamson

I know I'm not the only one who felt so removed from this tragedy and yet felt so much pain. I know I'm not the only one who thought of every person I've ever met from Connecticut, every child in my life, every parent I know. I know I'm not the only one whose heart has been aching for a way to help. I wish we didn't have to do this but we do and I'm proud of my former teammate, fellow U-M alum, and a Newton grad, for giving us all a way to help. 

Every little bit truly does help and every little bit will go to the Sandy Hook Community. Please give what you can, spread the word, and pray. We can never undo the terrible wrongs of that day but we can provide support and love to help bring healing to this town that could have just as easily been our own. 


Fund organizer, my former teammate Ryan Kraft wrote -

This is a fund started by a former Sandy Hook Elementary student to gather support for the victims, families, and all others affected locally by the tragic shooting on Dec 14th, 2012. The funds are directed to the school's PTSA organization. Please help in any way you can.

Please post your ideas for how to use the money!

Here are some ideas that have come in:

1) Counseling for the survivors (children and families)

2) Funeral expenses for affected families

3) Scholarship fund supporting students at Sandy Hook Elementary




Several people have asked about where their funds will actually go. I contacted the organizers of this site and received the following info:

Crowdrise partners with Network for Good to process all donations.  Network for Good will send donations, less transaction fees, directly to PTSA Sandy Hook at the official address below.  Donations made in December will be sent no later than January 15th.

PTSA Connecticut Congress

12 Dickenson Dr

Sandy Hook , CT  06482


This is the address of the school. I have contacted the school to make sure they're expecting the funds in January, and will keep everyone updated on how the money is used.
