Sandy Hook Tragedy - How can I Help ?

Our hearts go out to all the families who lost loved ones at Sandy Hook. I can't recall ever feeling so sick after reading CNN. Those kids had their entire lives ahead of them, and to meet such a unjust tragic end really makes wonder whats wrong with the world?  Honestly, the thought of all those Christmas presents wrapped and waiting in closets that will never be given saddens me to my core.  While you can't blame the world's troubles on a single individual's sickness, one is left wondering how can such evil things happen. 

I'm sure you've seen the Facebook posts about gun control and mental illness.  And I hope it brings awareness about these two important issues in order to prevent tragedies like this reoccurring   The support of Facebook and social media have been great.  But what can we do to help?
