Ducks of Sandy Hook

If you are a snappy peep, then you know we sent over 1500 handmade beanies to Sandy Hook Elementary last month. I am still hoping for pix of some kind and will share any I receive.

A few days ago, after posting about our event coming up in May involving rubber ducks dressed in sweaters, I received an email from my Sandy Hook contact. She shared a few links and asked I pass them along. Sandy Hook is sharing rubber ducks and bringing some joy to their school. I have been looking through pix on their facebook page, The Ducks of Sandy Hook Elementary. Take a few minutes to read what they are doing.

Here are a few other articles about Sandy Hook Ducks:

Sandy Hook is asking for duck donations. 
A note from the resource officer that started this event:
I am assigned to the Sandy Hook School as the school based police officer. A donor had sent approximately 500 small rubber ducks, which the kids loved immensely. My counterpart and I spread them out everyday in the lobby of the school kids, and yes adults, take them to keep. The joy the ducks bring to everyone can not be put into words. We plan to keep buying ducks and placing them out everyday as long as the school is in use. Anyone that would like to help us with the purchasing of the ducks, your help is greatly appreciated. If you would like to send a monetary donation or order ducks contact me and I will provide an address (address below was provided after this original post). Everyone in the school enjoys the ducks and we never want to have to tell anyone we don't have any to give them, child or adult.
Here is the address to send ducks to:
Ducks of Sandy Hook
261 S. Main St. Box # 312
Newtown CT. 06470
