Cookies and Crafts for Sandy Hook {#BloggersforSandyHook}

In the wake of the horrible events of Friday, December 14th, we wanted to organize a way for bloggers and people all over the world to show their tribute and unite in support of Newtown, Connecticut and Sandy Hook Elementary School.

It’s times like these when we feel helpless; we want to DO something but we don’t know what.

On Friday, December 21, 2012, we are going to honor the victims, families, and community of Newtown by doing a post in their honor. Cookies an Crafts for Sandy Hook will be one way we can show support in the aftermath of this unimaginable event.

On Friday, December 21, write a post sharing a cookie or a craft and a tribute to Sandy Hook Elementary School. There is no specific requirement…just do or make something to show your support. Maybe something you would make for, or with, your children.

Please spread the word about this united effort wherever you can. You can use the hashtag #BloggersforSandyHook.

Don’t have a blog? That’s okay. You can still share something for Sandy Hook. Take a picture and post it on your Facebook wall, your Twitter feed. Share on Instagram or your Google+ or wherever you can to unite us in our tribute.

Something people always think about in times like this is how they can help monetarily. After some searching, we found the Newtown Youth and Family Services website. According to their website, 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.” All donations made to them are going to go back to those affected by the school shooting. You can find their website here.

Many bloggers have Etsy shops or businesses and have expressed a desire to donate some profits from sales on Friday, December 21 to this organization or others to help the victims, their families, and the community. The following is a list of such businesses. If you own a shop and would like to contribute some of your profits on Friday, December 21, please add your link to the list. I will put the list in my post on Friday, and make it available to anyone who wishes to also put it in their post.

Let’s come together as a community, a country, a world this Friday. We can show our support for the victims of this through our words, our prayers, and our support. Thank you.

    A friend of mine and I did something very similar to this initiation to offer support and assistance to the victims of Hurricane Sandy. It might seem a small token but it was not received that way; the people in that area that saw the effort were touched and grateful. It can begin to seem as if no one in the larger community really is aware or cares; this effort will surely send a message that conveys just the opposite. I do plan to participate; thanks for doing this.

    Thanks so much Dorothy for doing this! I will have my post up on Friday, and 1/2 of my Etsy shop proceeds will go to the fund! I also tweeted about this! In the lieu of this tragedy we can all help in a special way!

    This is truly awesome and I have already actually done this in my pst yesterday believe it or not. Also, I belong to a Facebook Blogging support group that has come together to help one of our own. She lost a dear friend’s little boy to this senseless tragedy and have banded together to start a collection for this family. With the proceeds, we will be helping to defray funeral costs (something no parent should even have to think about at this kid’s tender age) and purchasing a star in his name, as well. Please do check out my blog with the details if you are interested in supporting at

    What a great tribute, Dorothy. I’m still numb from the news. It’s sad that all the schools have to have security now, my daughters school is like Fort Knox!

    My heart is breaking. I’ll certainly be joining in and making some treats with the help of my children in tribute to those poor children and heroic teachers. May they rest in peace. :(

    It was with a heavy heart that I baked a special cookie to share this Friday. It’s hard to understand how such a tragedy could occur. My heart breaks for the families of the children and the teachers whose lives ended too soon.

    I really love this idea and I’m all for it! I will be honored to partake in this with you. We are already doing some things for the school and community. I’m the Cubmaster for my son’s Cub Scout pack and 2 of the boys killed were Cub Scouts so we are also doing things locally for them!

    I can’t wait to see how this all turns out. God Bless You!

      Thanks Demi! I can’t wait to see it either!

    Dorothy, Thank you for this idea. I will certainly be posting.

    PS-I added my link to your linky…is that supposed to be for bloggers who are participating or just for shops?


    • crazyforcrust replied on December 20th, 2012 at 1:43 pm

      Thanks for joining in! The linky is just for the shops participating. :)

        Oh dear….because I linked up at work and now I’m at home, I can’t remove my link. I’m sorry!
