Sandy Hook Promise

Written by 

I am so proud to announce this month's feature on the Sandy Hook Promise (SHP). I remember, just like everyone being so devastated and heart broken when I first heard the news. SHP is a non-profit organization led by community members and several parents and spouses who lost loved ones in the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012 that claimed the lives of 20 first-graders and 6 educators.

As their website states, their mission is twofold.

1)     Prevent the causes of gun violence by educating and empowering parents to make changes in their community that will not only prevent tragedies like Sandy Hook, but also the hundreds of thousands of other acts of gun violence every year in every state.

2)     Help our community through this tragedy by providing immediate and long-term financial, in-kind and other aid, on request, to families who lost loved ones, those wounded and others in our community impacted by this tragedy.

As we reach the one-year anniversary of this event, let us show our support to this community that is working hard to heal by going to their website here and joining 250k+ people who have made the Sandy Hook Promise.
