Community encouraged to perform acts of kindness to honor Sandy Hook victims

Families of the victims of Sandy Hook are calling on people to mark the upcoming anniversary by performing acts of kindness or volunteering with charities throughout the week.

 

Some officials, including Gov. Dannel Malloy and United States Sen. Richard Blumenthal, are joining in on the effort.

 

"More than just ceremonies and speeches, what's important is acts of kindness, whether it's buying a cup of coffee or contributing to a charity or giving up a seat on a train," says Sen. Blumenthal.

 

Officials started the tradition of marking the Sandy Hook anniversary with acts of kindness back in 2013.
