Sticker Labels Help Connecticut Town Recover
Sticker labels have recently been worn as a remembrance to the victims of a devastating tragedy. Three NFL teams all wore stickers on their helmets honoring the 20 children and six adults who lost their lives when a gunman opened fire in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
But besides the emotional message carried by stickers, local residents are also selling bumper stickers to help affected families recover from the shooting.
'We Are Newtown' Custom Stickers Raise Money
As reported by the Newton Patch website, local high school students Taylor Varga and Amy Martin got some help from a neighborhood printer to make the custom stickers that read "We Are Newtown."
"It's been an incredible outreach that this town's had," Varga told Patch. "Everybody's doing something ... We didn't know how big it was going to be at first."
The local news source also said the sales from the bumper stickers have gotten requests from New York and Boston and raised nearly $13,000 to go toward the families that lost loved ones.
