Lights and Love Night Light Drive For Sandy Hook Elementary



When I was a little girl and would awake, frightened, in the middle of the night there were two things I found much comfort in. The first was an army of stuffed animals that surrounded me in my bed each night and the second was my night light. A tiny beacon of light in that big bedroom of mine often reminded me that everything would be OK. That I wasn't alone.

That's my hope with these night lights. I want these night lights to serve as tiny beacons of hope and comfort for those children, families and friends affected by the tragic and devastating events of last Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary. 

I can only imagine the terror and panic that the victims and their families will suffer through for days, weeks, months and even years to come. With each little light that shines for them in the darkness, I want them to be reminded that they are not alone. That everything will be OK. 

If you so wish to donate a night light please email me for the address. 

I will be collecting these night lights until January 11th and then I will be packaging them up and shipping them off to my contact in Newtown. Each night light will receive a sticker bearing the graphic you see above, stamped with an extra little note of love. 

Many thanks to everyone who has already expressed an interest in donating. Please feel free to share this post with friends and family!



Many thanks to Aliya of Aliya Rinaldi Designs for creating the incredible graphic that will adorn each night light sent to Newtown.

  11. As always, you have the biggest heart friend and you will most certainly be receiving night lights from us! This is truly a fabulous idea (not that it surprises me at all with your ability to find great ideas!) and I do believe this will bring comfort, especially to the siblings of the victims in this time of need! Thank you! xoxoxo

  25. Hi, I have a question :) I want to buy some night lights, but I am on a budget. I also live in Germany (military), so I'll be ordering via amazon to be sent directly to you. However, looking at the selection...would you rather a few "cute" ones or four times as many plain/basic night lights? Thanks in advance!

  27. This is just lovely of you! I will look for one this week, I think!
