How to Help Sandy Hook
In the wake of such a tragedy, the overwhelming support of people around the world can descend on a small town in a whirlwind. The generosity and kindness can be, at times, overwhelming. At Really Good Stuff, we have personally reached out to the Newtown Board of Education to see how we can best help them with the new school. We’re just waiting to hear back, but are eager to help our community.
