More news has arrived from America Responds With Love, the charity organization that took on multiple pallets of stuffed animals donated to Newtown after 12/14, for distribution to others in need. You might remember that Richard McDonough of America Responds reported in July that 200 of the stuffed pillows and animals had been provided to Aurora, Colo., for healing purposes. Now Aurora is paying it forward, donating 100 of the stuffed animals to Cañon City, Colo., as that town recovers from devastating springtime fires.
