Stuffed toys, such as these removed from a memorial site last January, have found lives of usefulness, thanks to the distribution efforts of America Responds With Love, Inc. Thousands of excess stuffed animals and comfort pillows were removed from a town warehouse in March by the organization, and have since been given out nationwide, to alleviate suffering.

America responded with love following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. So much love, in fact, that it could not be contained within the borders of the town.
Teddy bears and other stuffed toys, pillows, and comfort articles of all sizes blanketed Newtown after 12/14. Well-wishers across the country and all over the world sought to bring solace to Newtown’s children and families in a universal gesture of comfort, the hugging of a stuffed toy that asks for nothing in return.
