Valentine’s Day marks the two month anniversary of the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT that took the lives of 20 first graders and six educators. As we celebrate those we love this year, Sandy Hook Promise is asking Americans to keep the community of Newtown in their hearts with its #1MillionHearts for Newtown campaign.
Sandy Hook Promise, the grassroots organization formed by Newtown friends and neighbors in the days following the tragedy, created #1MillionHearts for Newtown as a way to honor the lives lost, and help the community and nation to heal. The campaign allows participants to send virtual Valentines as a way of pledging their support. Virtual Valentines can be shared from our website: 1MillionHearts.SandyHookPromise.org and on social media with the hashtag #1MillionHearts.
