Blogger Day of Silence in Support of Sandy Hook



It's all over the news, this terrible tragedy in the small town of Newtown, Connecticut.  On Saturday, just a handful of bloggers wrote this post (shown below) together, in support of all those effected.  Bloggers can help make a difference.  Every little bit helps.  We are proud to participate.  Please read below for more information.


A day of silence to remember the lives that were taken.
 The below message was copied and pasted here for you to read.

To the Blog World and Anyone Else who Wants to Help,
Last Friday, tragedy struck so many of us in ways we did not foresee. An elementary school and small town in Connecticut was shattered by a mass shooting.
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 http://www.newtownyouthandfamilyservices.org/.

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 here 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
