James R. Mattioli Memorial Fund

I'm forwarding this on in case anyone is interested in helping this family. It is a legit address from one of my friends, not from Facebook land.

"By now, everyone has heard of the tragic events Friday in Newtown, CT. I'm sure there will be many charities and many offers of assistance, and if you are looking to give, please consider giving to the James R. Mattioli Memorial Fund. I know James' aunt Melissa and my sadness and grief for their entire family is indescribable. Whether you choose to give or not, please pray for peace for these families and everyone in their community."

c/o Newtown Savings Bank
39 Main Street
Newtown, CT 06470
My niece Holly shared this with me. She knows little James aunt Melissa personally so this is not some  'snopes"  or Facebook  hoax! This is my niece and this is her friend who is aunt to little James. He was a huge baseball fan and the family would like to build  a baseball field to  honor James 'memory.  I know many charities will be springing up but I wanted to share this because my niece knows Melissa and wants everyone to know if you can not make a donation in James memory please pray for the entire community in Newtown, CT. Thank you.

By now everyone heard the Morgan Freeman piece about the media was a hoax. Half the time anything you want to do someone says snopes says it is false yet I still do not know who snopes is, why people trust it and who is behind it! With all that said I wanted to share the very first legitimate information I received.

I hope you also will use the school address here:

Sandy Hook Elementary School
12 Dickenson Drive
Sandy Hook, CT. 06482

To send any cards or letters to these precious families during this tremendously difficult time. Please write the names of these beautiful children and the adults who perished with them on your heart. Please do not forget them. 

Chris Johnson is following in Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz‘s footsteps by giving a personal tribute to the Newtown, Conn., victims on his cleats. The Titans’ running back has written all 26 names on his cleats for Tennessee’s Monday Night Football game against the Jets. Cruz wrote the name of Jack Pinto, a six-year-old victim, on his cleats and gloves after he found out he was the young boy’s favorite player. Johnson tweeted, “R.I.P to all the victims” along with a picture of his cleats. He is averaging five yards per carry this season after a down year in 2011. He has 223 carries for 1,037 yards and four touchdowns.  below. Photo via Twitter/@SportsCenter   via Twitter/@ChrisJohnson28

thanks Anne...Snopes is run by a husband and wife from California. Not trained investigators and very far to the left. It's been proven that they do not always check for the truth. No surprise there.
Wishing you and your family peace and all the blessings He promised (())

Our prayers have been flying East non-stop. This is such a tragedy and a travesty and a heart ache.
