Remembrance Ribbon Decals Raise Money for Sandy Hook

ribbons4sandyhook.com - Making a Difference, One Ribbon at a Time. Car Window Remembrance Ribbon Decals made locally to aid the Sandy Hook Community.

On January 14, 2013 friends Marci Durnell & Thayer Syme from neighboring Brookfield and Danbury, CT came up with an idea to aid the Sandy Hook community.

Making a Difference One Ribbon at a Time

They started making Remembrance Ribbon Decals for car windows and created a website called ribbons4sandyhook.com. Marci & Thayer are hand making each simply designed green and white window decal themselves. “We could source mass-produced ribbons for less money from a major manufacturer, but physically putting our personal touch on this product to aid our neighbors, genuinely matters to us!”

Four Dollars From Each Ribbon Sold

Marci & Thayer are simply two neighbors making remembrance decals for your car. They have donated four dollars from each ribbon sold to date to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund and vow to continue this donation throughout the duration of this project. This fund was created, and is being administered, by the United Way of Western Connecticut in partnership with Newtown Savings Bank.

We Will Never Forget

They hope to see these green and white ribbons respectfully displayed upon your car’s rear window in support of the entire Sandy Hook community and also to say “No to Violence.”

As a way to touch base with your sorrow or express your support, but mainly, in remembrance we all wish to say, “We will never forget."

Whether you are from Connecticut or a world away, this sentiment is global.

Local Businesses Show Support

Local Businesses in several neighboring towns are already showing support for ribbons4sandyhook.com by allowing Marci & Thayer to ribbon decal their storefront windows as well as post informative signage supporting this cause. "We would like for our ribbon to become a widely recognized symbol of support for Sandy Hook. Our ribbon stands for both remembrance and hope. Hope of neighbors helping neighbors and hope of people reaching out to do their part."
