As I watched the horrific events unfold on Friday I felt completely helpless. My heart ached for these families and for the
innocent victims whose lives were taken from this earth all too soon.
I especially felt an overwhelming sadness for the Moms who would never again be able to see their children or embrace them.
The only way I could think to help these Moms in this time of tragedy is to get care packages together for them.
This will not take a lot of time or money and I know that this small act of kindness will help to ease someone’s burden, if only for
a moment or two.
This is what I am asking....
Please gather up as many of these items listed below and send them to:
Moms of Sandy Hook
P.O. Box 3700 Newtown, CT. 06470
Items on the list include but are not limited to:
A box of tissue, a small bottle of lotion, one or two bottles of water,
a non perishable snack such as a granola bar, crackers, beef jerky, etc.
a blank journal, a blanket, lip balm, waterproof mascara, and a small candle.
As a person who has lost a loved one in a tragic accident, I remember the small things in those following days of grief that helped me get through the difficult times.
I had to remember to keep myself nourished and hydrated, which in times of sorrow we often overlook.
I advise you to keep your words few, but heartfelt if you include a note or card.
Please let me know if you are able to send a package. I appreciate your time.
