Sisters make teddy bears for Newtown

From ABC News

There's been an outpouring of support from the community of Newton since last Friday's school shooting.

Now, two teachers are showing their support for the victims and their families.

Emily Donnellan and her sister Elizabeth are sending lots of teddy bears... some of them handmade, to Newtown. The sisters started a Facebook page for their project.

"I just tried to think of what would comfort a community you know in such a time of tragedy, and everybody loves teddy bears," Emily Donnellan said. "There's gonna be a lot of kids having a lot of nightmares for a long time, and I think the teddy bears, if they can bring even a little bit of happiness in a really sad situation to those kids, it will be amazing."

Teddy bear donations are coming in from all over the country and even from Canada.
