Hello, I am Laurie Schloff, author of the book Twenty Twinkling Stars, a children's book written after the tragedy in Newtown on December 14, 2012.
Our team searched for an organization to donate sales of the book to.
We investigated many and felt that SAVE had the most comprehensive, sensible and long term impact of any organization dedicated to violence prevention.
Additionally, Carleen Wray, Brandon Boxler and Gary Weart, leaders and mentors to the students of SAVE are passionate, responsive and tireless in their mission for a more peaceful future.
