How to Help Newtown with Cash and Kindness

December 18, 2012

I send a weekly email to all our new and used car customers with car buying info, tips about Key Hyundai, community outreach events and general life of a Connecticut car dealer mom/soccer coach/mentor/small business owner/community advocate news. This week was different, and I share that here.

It is with a heavy heart I write this week about the tragedy just up the road in Newtown Connecticut. This tragedy affects our country, our world, but it specifically affects Key Hyundai customers, employees and community.

Many of us are feeling helpless, but here is something simple that you can do to make the world a bit better, and will help you begin to heal as well:

26 Acts of Kindness for Newtown

I have committed to performing 26 acts of goodness over the next month and I invite you to do so as well! 26 acts of kindness is a simple direct way to reach out and make the world a better place. It needn’t be extravagant, just simple deed that makes the day brighter for someone someplace.

As Sandy Hook and Newtown struggle to recover and regain strength, here is a reputable source to donate to should you desire, where 100% of all funds go directly to the families impacted. Here’s where to donate:

Sandy Hook School Support Fund
c/o Newtown Savings Bank
39 Main Street 
Newtown, Connecicut 06470

 And please don’t forget our first amazing, brave responders: those who were on the scene in Newtown, and those that work hard every day in our own towns and neighborhoods. When you see a police officer, fire fighter, EMT – all those who rush in when the world is rushing out, please thank them for their service.
