After a tragedy like ours, and with the frightening regularity of gun violence since, it'd be easy to lose faith or think nothing can be done.
But if I've learned one thing during this difficult year, it's that at their centers, people are kind. They're unselfish. They're generous with their time, their love and their financial support.
It's those characteristics – it's you – that will bring about real, lasting change.
Giving Tuesday is a special opportunity – one day to pause the holiday season's rushing and shopping – to show the strength of our commitment to building a safer, healthier world for all children.
Every donation up to $200,000 that we receive today will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous donor. So please don't wait – make your tax-deductible gift now, before midnight, and have it go twice as far.
Another thing we've all learned during the last year is that change is hard. Still, for the 20 children and 6 educators torn from us so senselessly, we are more committed than ever to making real change happen. It's just a question of having the resources we need to address the causes of gun violence and empower people to make changes in their communities.
Your Giving Tuesday contribution will help Sandy Hook Promise roll out proven tools and programs that focus on mental wellness, community and gun safety.
And today, your generosity will join with that of thousands of others all across the country, united by our love for our children and our determination to prevent tragedies like ours from happening again.
So I'm asking you to make your tax-deductible donation to Sandy Hook Promise today, on Giving Tuesday. With our generous donor waiting to match your gift, there's no better time.
Thank you so much for using this Giving Tuesday to help prevent gun violence and promise a safer future for all children.
