As we approach the one year anniversary of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14th. That makes it the right time to tell you about The Sandy Ground: Where Angels Play.
The group was inspired by the senseless violence in Newtown, CT and the damage done to the storm ravaged east coast after Hurricane Sandy. In an effort to honor the victims and restore the area, the group has made it their mission to build 26 playgrounds, one for every life taken at Sandy Hook Elementary School on that horrible day. When completed, the playgrounds will stand as 26 living memorials for all children who have been victims of violence while creating safe, fun places for children to be children.
To date, 13 playgrounds have been built with help from local communities, so they still have a ways to go. If you would like to help out, go to: http://thesandygroundproject.org.
