Silence and Support

To the blog world and anyone else who wants to help,

Friday, December 14, 2012, tragedy struck so many of us in ways we did not foresee. An elementary school, a small town in Connecticut and an entire country was shattered by a mass shooting. We (bloggers of the world) knew we wanted to help and came up with this:



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. 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 THIS PAGE 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 our blogging voices to spread love, hope and our prayers to all those who were directly effected from this tragedy. Thank you in advance for participating and God bless.

Love,
The Blog World
