Paul Walker's Charity Raising Funds For Sandy Hook

Paul Walker's non profit organization, Reach Out Worldwide, also has a tie to Sandy Hook.

They have setup a fundraising campaign for Sandy Hook.

“Safety and security don’t just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear.”
-Nelson Mandela

   I am the Director of Partnerships with Reach Out Worldwide and more importantly I am a father of a six-year-old boy. Like many of you this event has shaken me to the core. I’m a man who takes pride in the ability to protect my family and fix anything that is broken. However, in the wake of this event I’m left feeling powerless. Although the arguments for keeping things like this from ever happening again are complex, the immediate needs our neighbors have in Newtown CT. are simple.
We desire to provide healing, love and compassion to those who have been affected by the devastating attack in their town.

We are partnering with local organizations to ensure the funds donated will go to a two-phase response.
First: $50,000
-Help cover direct costs to the victim’s families
-Send professional counselors
Second $50,000
-We will partner with local entities and artists to build a permanent memorial for the children of Sandy Hook.

They have 3 official fundraisers. Can you spot which one has a memorable name?

To date they have raised over 600.00. You can view the fundraising site HERE.
