Remembering Sandy Hook Elementary & the Newtown Community
The tragic school shooting in Newtown, CT has sent a shock wave through our country. While this story is, unfortunately, not a new one, it has struck the hearts of Americans in such a strong way that we all want to do something, anything, to remember and help spread healing and change.
We’ve heard from so many across the USA asking what they can do to show their support for this New England community and spread the word about ending such horrendous violence. For us at SupportStore, the past week has been humbling as we work with those from the Newtown community in putting together a way to honor and remember those who are no longer with us.
Sandy Hook Memorial Donation Ribbon Magnet
Working with those in Newtown, CT, SupportStore has helped design the Sandy Hook Memorial Donation Ribbon Magnet, the proceeds of which will be donated to support those from Sandy Hook. This is the same ribbon magnet that is on its way to Newtown.
Display this Sandy Hook Elementary – In Our Hearts – 12.14.12 memorial ribbon magnet in school color green on your vehicle to remind people that our children and our security matter most.
By special arrangement, $8.00 of each ribbon magnet will be donated to: “Connecticut PTSA Sandy Hook Fund” to support the ongoing needs of the Sandy Hook Community. (Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514).
* Please note that orders for the Sandy Hook Memorial Donation Ribbon Magnet will begin shipping after December 24, 2012. Our first priority is to get these magnets into the hands of the Newtown community. We appreciate your patience.
The response we’ve received so far has been overwhelming and we’ve been told that those in Newtown are truly appreciative of all the support. We hope that, even though many of us are miles away from this community, they know that we stand with them in remember and honoring their loved ones.
**UPDATE 12/23/12** As of December 22, 2012, new orders for the Sandy Hook Memorial Donation Ribbon Magnet will begin shipping after January 3, 2013. Our priority remains to be the community of Newtown and getting these magnets to them first. Again, we appreciate your patience and the outpouring of support from all over the U.S.A.
