A Venice crowd-funding company launched a campaign to raise money for families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School victims.
Venice-based When You Wish was founded in February 2001 to give people a platform to solicit online donations. The company is waiving its usual 5 percent fee for any funds raised for the Connecticut victims that will go toward funeral expenses and counseling for surviving children.

Local Sandy Hook parents have also established a fund to support victims’ families called “My Sandy Hook Family Fund.”
The U.S. Postal Service has set up a post office box for the public to send its condolences to Newtown. You can send letters and cards to P.O. Box 3700, Newtown, CT 06470.
