What is this website?

This website is the bridge between the families of the victims and the people who want to reach out. With all the heartfelt but scattered posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr, we wanted to create an easy way for anyone to write a letter, and to collect it all in one place. It gives people an effective way to comfort the heartbroken, and it acts as a way for people to become aware of how much others care.

You can also read the Synopsis section for more information about this incident.

Why are you doing this?

The tragedy that recently took place in Sandy Hook Elementary School is truly unforgettable, and many people have been emotionally hurt by it. Families and many others are heartbroken, and Newtown is in turmoil. Giving the families of victims a comforting word or two can go a long way in helping them, and we want to make an easy way to reach out to them.

How are you doing this?

We're collecting letters and messages for the citizens of Newtown on this website. Anyone can view these messages or write their own.

We also have some cool things we plan to do once we have enough letters. Stay tuned :)
