VJ’s Ashley Maxon works to help Newtown families
They did it by creating NewtownPride.com, an online store that sells “I Love Newtown” T-shirts as well as others saying “Love is Louder Than Violence” and “We Are Newtown.”
“This has been a really good channel for some of my emotions,” Ashley told The New York Daily News. “I feel terrible for the community there. This is how I can help.”
All the proceeds from the T-shirt sales go to the Sandy Hook PTSA and the victims’ families.
The president of PayPal, David Marcus, contacted Ashley and Kerin Thursday to let them know that he supports what they’re doing, and he waived all fees associated with transactions for their site.
