The whole idea is to give people the right address to send letters of support to Newtown, Connecticut.
Mossholder sent a hand-written letter and is encouraging friends and family to do the same. As an aspiring elementary school teacher, Mossholder says this tragedy just really hit close to home.
“I don’t think there’s any question this was devastating for a lot of people,” said Mossholder.
“I work at Franklin Elementary School and I’ve been there for four and a half years. I work with a lot of kids in the same age group. Just knowing that happened in our country is just shocking to me,” he added.
“It affected me quite a bit and it hasn’t gotten off my mind so I thought I would do something about it.”
