Note received from one of our donors... Hi.. I was raised in Sandy Hook and went to the elementary school. I have such fond memories of growing up there and I want to help. I work as a hairstylist in Fairfield.. I've organized a cut a thon for Sunday January 27th. All of the proceeds will go directly to this fund. We will be donating all of our tips and selling tshirts too. I've been looking for a fund that does not charge any fees. Very happy to have stumbled upon this. I hope to raise a lot of money to help support all that were affected by this tragedy. Thanks, Camille

I've been devastated since Friday morning when the news started to break on FB that this was happening. Such a sad and difficult time being from Sandy Hook and knowing that your friends and the community are suffering so much. I think this Fund Raising Drive is such a great gesture and hope that many are able to help out in some way to give support to those who have to endure the difficulties they will have to deal with over the coming days and weeks. Peace to All.
