THE STORY:

Halie wrote...

 

This is an opportunity for us to help these families in any way we can. The goal here is to raise money that is sent directly to the PTSA of the school. We are sending the funds there because the members of the PTSA have access to EVERY SINGLE FAMILY effected by this tragedy.  We have confirmed with the school that they are going to use the donations to provide resources for survivors and victims. Many of these families are struggling to cover the cost of burying their child...can you imagine what that feels like...I didn't think so. Let's all band together to help ease their pain even if it's only in a monatary way. As a mother, I cannot begin to tell you what not only the parents of the victims, but also the survivors, are having to endour. I wanted to make a difference and this is the only way I know how. Please Please Please take this opportunity to consider the overwhelming pain these people are suffering and give back.  The money raised will be used for counseling, support groups, and many other ideas the PTSA is dilligently working to put together. 

 

Thanks so much for the support! 

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

***NOTE***

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.

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.
