Sandy Hook victims’ funds reap millions of dollars in donation

Santa Claus came to Newtown, Connecticut, on Sunday, February 24, 2013.

On that day, an event called “Community Giveaway” took place at Newtown’s Reed Intermediate School, where thousands of town residents came to pick-and-choose from among the thousands upon thousands of gifts donated by generous people from across America and the world. They had felt sorry for the town because of the massacre of 20 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School the previous Dec. 14th.

From noon to 3 pm, Sandy Hook School students and their families, as well as the school’s staffers, browsed through the gifts and took the ones they wanted. From 3 to 6 pm, the event broadened its scope to allow other Newtown families to browse and select gifts.

The thousands of gifts in the Community Giveaway were only a fraction of the donations received by Sandy Hook victims’ funds. Some of the funds are private, such as the Emilie Parker Fund on Facebook created a day after the massacre, which do not make public how much money they’ve received. (Go here and here for some fundraising or memorial sites that have a creation date before the massacre.)

But other Sandy Hook victims’ funds do make public the total amount of monetary donations they’ve received. Those donations are in MILLIONS of dollars. Below is a list of the total amounts received by some Sandy Hook victims’ funds. These are only the funds I was able to find:

  • More than $1,000 was raised “in just over 3 hours” by Newtown High School’s Peer Leadership group for The Sandy Hook School Support Fund. The group did it by enlisting seven NHS faculty members to stand in as servers at Pizza Palace Restaurant on February 12, with the restaurant’s customers — many of them students of the teachers — encouraged to tip generously during the special event.
  • $2,500 raised by Isabel Linzer, a high school student at Yorktown High School in Virginia, who collected donations at her school, in her community, and from businesses.
  • $10,000 raised by Andrew Ernest, a senior at Oswego East High School in Oswego, Ill. , for the Newtown Memorial Fund. On February 18, 2013, the teenager traveled to Newtown to deliver in person the $10,000 he had raised over one month through efforts made at his high school. The Newtown Memorial Fund has a Facebook page and a website.
  • $1 million raised thus far by the Newtown Memorial Fund, “to provide for the immediate and ongoing needs of those affected by the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy.”
  • $1.3 million raised by the My Sandy Hook Family Fund, started by a group of Newtown parents. According to the Newtown Bee, the $1.3 million “is already being distributed directly to the 26 victims’ families, with each receiving approximately $47,000.” Since the $1.3 million represents only half of the fund’s goal of $2.6 million, when/if the fund reaches its total, that means each Sandy Hook victim family will get $100,000 from just this fund alone.
  • $9 million raised by a United Way/Newtown Savings Bank fund, from which a foundation — the Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation Inc. — was created to disperse the funds. The Foundation is headed by a panel of local and state leaders who are in charge of reviewing requests for distributions from the fund. The panel includes Monsignor Robert Weiss of Newtown’s St Rose of Lima parish, former Newtown Finance Director Ben Spragg, Danbury Hospital’s chair of psychiatry Dr Charles R. Herrick, Newtown attorney Anne Ragusa, and former finance committee chair of the Legislative Council Joe DeCandido. Meanwhile, the fund will continue to receive donations.

By my count, the above comes to a total of $19,015,120 — over $19 million.

The $19+ million represent just the donations I was able to find, most of them from the Newtown Bee, Newtown’s local newspaper. Curiously, when I click on the URLs for the individual news articles I had retrieved just a few days ago, I now get this message: “Page not found: The requested page could not be found.”

Just one more oddity on top of the many anomalies about the Sandy Hook massacre. (For FOTM’s posts on some of those anomalies, go to our “Sandy Hook Massacre” page.)

Sandy Hook RIP/donation webpages created BEFORE the massacre

In addition to the the odd behavior of Robbie Parker, dad of a Sandy Hook child victim; professional crisis actors simulating mass casualty events; and the doppleganger photos of parents, here’s more “make crazy” weirdness about the Sandy Hook massacre.

We now know of four condolence/donation websites and pages that were created 1-3 days BEFORE the massacre. Please note that the date when a website or webpage is created is not up to the person setting it up. Instead, the date is automatically set by the webpage’s server, such as Facebook, WordPress, etc.

1. “R.I.P. Victoria Soto” Facebook Page

Victoria Soto was a teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School who was killed that terrible morning of December 14, 2012.

Soto’s friends and family (presumably) created a touching “Rest In Peace Victoria Soto” Facebook page.

Soto RIP

The only problem is the page was created on December 11, 2012 — three days before Soto was killed.

Soto Facebook

After somebody discovered that and the discovery went viral, excuses were made that the December 10 date was a glitch.

If you go to Soto’s R.I.P. Facebook page today, you’ll see that the page’s “Joined Facebook” date is now December 15, 2013, one day after the massacre.

2. United Way “Sandy Hook School Support Fund”

The charity organization United Way set up a website, “Sandy Hook School Support Fund,” to convey their condolences to and solicit donation for the families of Sandy Hook victims. Isn’t that touching?

Here’s the Sandy Hook School Support Fund webpage:

United Way for Sandy Hook

Below is an excerpt from that page:

United Way extends our most sincere condolences and prayers to all those families affected by the devastating events in Newtown/Sandy Hook, Connecticut. While the eyes of the world may be on Newtown/Sandy Hook, to several staff, volunteers and contributors, Newtown is home. We will stand with the community and everyone affected directly and indirectly by this tragic event as we face the days and weeks ahead.

The only problem is United Way’s Sandy Hook School Support Fund webpage was created on December 11, 2012, three days before the massacre.

Ed Thomas of Daily Sheeple did a Google search for ‘Sandy Hook United Way’ and found a cached page dated December 11, 2012, stating “United Way extends our most sincere condolences and prayers to all those families affected by the devastating events in Newtown/Sandy Hook, Connecticut.”

United Way Google

As of Jan. 4, 2013, United Way of Western Connecticut said they had already raised over $6 million for the Sandy Hook School Support Fund.

3. Sandy Hook Elementary Victims’ Fund

Another webpage to solicit donation for the victims of Sandy Hook is the Sandy Hook Elementary Victims Fund:

SH victims fund

But the “About” page for Sandy Hook Elementary Victims Fund has a date of December 13, 2013, one day before the Dec. 14 massacre:

SH victims fund About

Here’s the YouTube video from which I took the above screenshots:

4. “Fundraiser for Families Involved in Tragic Newtown, CT Shootings” on YouCaring:

Govtslaves.info on Jan. 8, 2013, reports that the fundraising site Youcaring.com has a “Fundraiser for the Families Involved in the Tragic Newtown, CT Shootings.” The only problem is the fundraiser event was dated December 10 2012, four days before the massacre. You can view the archived page here.

I can see how one mis-dated webpage might be due to a computer glitch or snafu, but FOUR?

UPDATE:

There are two more pre-massacre documents:

Update (Dec. 15, 2015):

Since this post was published 3 years ago, there have been many more anomalies about Sandy Hook. It is now compelling to any thinking person who dispassionately examines the testimonies of empirical evidence that the massacre was a contrived event — a false flag for the purpose of gun control. Please go to our “Sandy Hook Massacre” page for the links to all the posts on Sandy Hoax.
