With the myriad of benefits and charities that have popped up because of the Sandy Hook massacre, I have been trying to determine how I can help. I’ve been very suspicious of emails and online solicitations asking for donations to personal Paypal accounts. Where is the oversight?
I did some research and this memorial fund truly resonated with me as it directly supports the survivors and the family of victims through higher education.
The Sandy Hook School Memorial Scholarship Fund at UConn was established with an $80,000 gift from the UConn Women’s Basketball Coach Geno Auriemma. The fund will offset college costs for current Sandy Hook students, siblings of victims, and dependents of victims who are accepted to the University of Connecticut which is one of the top public universities in the country.
I know a lot of people who read my blog are friends and peers, and I’m certain all of you would agree with me that education is the best gift anyone can receive. I hope you’ll consider donating to this worthy cause.
