The little gift card collection project that my wife and I did for 48 hours went very well and the cards were delivered earlier today. I’ll have a separate post about our efforts at some point soon. In the meantime, others have asked what else they can do to help Sandy Hook elementary school, particularly now that we are not taking any more collections. I’ve received the following list from the school itself. These are simple, concrete ways to make a difference.
(Note: No more teachers’ supplies are going to be needed due to all that they have.)
