Gift Guide – Giving Back

While we’re sharing gift ideas for our friends and family let’s not forget that this is the season of giving. There are a myriad of charities to donate to so we decided to share some of our favorites. Donating to your favorite charity is also a great way to share on your wedding day!

Please feel free to comment and let us know where you send good tidings!

Sandy Hook Elementary

This holiday season I think Sandy Hook Elementary is top of mind for most of us. This is one of the easiest and most thoughtful ways to send thoughts and love to the victims and family members who have suffered from this horrific targedy. The Connecticut PTSA has met with the PTA and community leaders in Newtown and Sandy Hook Elementary and are spearheading the following efforts on their behalf:

Snowflakes for Sandy Hook
Please help the students of Sandy Hook have a winter wonderland at their new school! Get Creative!!  No two snowflakes are alike. Make and send snowflakes to Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT  06514, by January 12, 2013.

Coins for Sandy Hook
Students can collect spare change to support their peers at Sandy Hook.  Other fundraising ideas include Walk- A -Thons, Spirit Days, Pajama Days, etc.

Please send contributions to “Connecticut PTSA Sandy Hook Fund” by February 14, 2013.

Ongoing Fundraising Efforts
Donations are being accepted indefinitely to the: “Connecticut PTSA Sandy Hook Fund” to support the ongoing needs of the Sandy Hook Community. Send checks to “Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514.

Mail snowflakes or donations to: Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514.  Phone: 203-281-6617

Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy devastated parts of the East Coast this year and the relief efforts are still heavily underway. There are many ways to donate and we’d love to hear your ideas! For now, visit the Red Cross or HSRF to learn how you can help.


Pups are near and dear to our heart as Tucker is part of the family. Donate to ASPCA and help all of the homeless and sick furry friends out there.

Any Soldier

This was my donation of choice last year and I think it’s really important to remember our those who are fighting for our freedom. Any Solider  is an excellent way to support our troops and send them holiday cheer. Visit Lovely Little Deatails’ blog to see how to donate.
