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:
Network for Good, our third party payment processing company, sends payments to charities on the 15th of each month that include all donations made in the previous month. For example, donations processed in December will be paid on January 15th. Charities will receive their payments less the Transaction Fee.
The money is sent to the address that the Charity has on file with GuideStar, a third party service that collects charity information from the IRS and the charities themselves. So, the funds raised on your page will be sent directly to the organization at this address:
