Some great organizations popping up to help the town, the victims, survivors, the children.
(CBS News) Whenever a community like Newtown, Conn., is hit by tragedy, Americans immediately pitch in to try and help.
The first visible example of that in Newtown was a flood of stuffed animals. Other contributions are paying for funerals, helping with counseling, and creating scholarships in the victims' memory.
Here are some websites where you can go to offer your help:
Sandy Hook School Support Fund
Newtown Memorial Fund
The Newtown Rotary Sandy Hook School Fund
The American Red Cross
Ryan Kraft- donations for Sandy Hook PTA
Call Connecticut Emergency Response at (800) 203-1234
The Helping Hands Project
The Helping Hands project is something people should inform their local schools about, just amazing idea. Everyone feels so helpless and wants to do something. This is a nice list of various organizations you can donate to. Go to the link for the links to click on for each one.
Some of these organizations have already raised over a million dollars in just days. Some excellent organizations. Please check them out and do what you can! If you have children in elementary school, contact the administration about the "Helping Hands" project. I e-mailed the principal at our school this morning. Great project for a great cause.
