A Day of Silence

To the Blog World and Anyone Else who Wants to Help,

I’m sure you all know by now about the shooting in Connecticut. Friday was a VERY tragic day. Having a one-year-old, I cannot even imagine {nor do I want to!} what it was like to be a child that went to that school, a parent of a child, a teacher, a spouse to a teacher, etc, and especially not a parent or spouse who lost a child in the shooting…

Today on Tuesday, December 18th, there will be a blogger day of silence.
We are posting this 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
