"Sandy Hook Promise is a national nonprofit organization founded and led by several family members whose loved ones were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. Based in Newtown, Connecticut, our intent is to honor all victims of gun violence by turning our tragedy into a moment of transformation. By empowering youth to “know the signs” and uniting all people who value the protection of children, we can take meaningful actions in schools, homes, and communities to prevent gun violence and stop the tragic loss of life."
Thank you for clicking on the link and donating to this fundraiser! My name is Emily Lind. I am a volunteer with Sandy Hook Promise and a resident of Southbury, Connecticut. Growing up next door to Newtown, I have seen the love and passion that has risen out of the tragedy of December 14, 2012.
The mission of SHP is two-fold: to prevent future gun violence and to support mental wellness. May is Mental Health Awareness Month. To conclude the month, this fundraiser works to help SHP further advocate for ending the sigma surrounding mental health and ensuring that our youth live their happiest and healthiest lives.
