Read more about #1Card4Newtown:
The Brandon Bitner Memorial has been touched by so many people across the world offering support after Brandon’s bullying-induced suicide in 2010. These messages of hope and support kept Brandon’s family and friends going throughout the past two years.
We know how important it is to have an encouraging community in a time of need. We want to engage our community to send at least one card or letter, with an uplifting message of support, to the families, victims and residents of Newtown, CT.
It’s a small gesture that will mean so much to this community, especially during the difficult holiday season ahead.

FAQ from Thunderclap.IT:
What is Thunderclap?
Thunderclap is a tool that lets a message be heard by saying it together. Join a Thunderclap, and you and others will share the same message together, spreading an idea through Facebook and Twitter that cannot be ignored.
What exactly am I agreeing to when I authorize my Facebook or Twitter account?
You are allowing Thunderclap to share a message on your behalf. This is only the case when you click the “Back this Message” button AND we will only share it if the project reaches its goal. We will not post any additional messages.
Will you post to my feed or to my friends as well?
Just your feed, we won’t spam your friends. That wouldn’t be nice.
