Silence and Support

I was struck with so much sadness for the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, CT. It absolutely breaks my heart that all those sweet souls were taken from this earth much too soon. Nothing makes my heart ache more than this senseless act.

The beauty of the blogging world is we can spread the good when something so tragic happens. Neely, Michelle, Meg have created a Blogger Day of Silence.

From Neely’s Blog:

On Tuesday, December 18th, there will be a blogger day of silence. We will post the button and that’s it. Please try to not post anything else that day if possible.

We are also raising money that will go to an organization in the memory of this tragedy. The organization is called The Newtown Family Youth and Family Services.

Here is the official description of the support service we are donating to:

“Newtown Youth and Family Services, Inc. is a licensed, non-profit, mental health clinic and youth services bureau dedicated to helping children and families achieve their highest potential. NYFS provides programs, services, activities, counseling, support groups and education throughout the Greater Newtown area.

ANY DONATIONS MADE TO NEWTOWN YOUTH AND FAMILY SERVICES WILL BE DONATED DIRECTLY TO THOSE EFFECTED BY THE SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SHOOTING.

Please visit THIS PAGE to make your donation.

We can’t imagine how they must be feeling, especially this close to the holidays. We would love for you to spread the word on your own blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Let’s make a difference and use blogging in a positive way.

Thank you in advance for participating.

Love,

The Blog World

So, please share, donate and spread the word. We need more love in this world.
