The purpose of The Rebels Project is to provide support for those affected by a tragedy. Our group is made up of mostly Columbine High School survivors and we hope to provide support and a listening ear for those people affected from other survivors of a tragedy, something that we did not have access to back in 1999.
The Rebels Project along with Phoenix 999 Charity (www.phoenix999.org) will
be sending stuffed animals along with personalized notes from Columbine
survivors to the victims of the Newtown, CT shooting. We are also raising funds to send a group of us to Newtown, CT to provide support and a future support group from people who have gone through a similar tragedy.
Thirteen years ago many people from around the country sent us stuffed
animals during our tragedy. Even today many Columbine alumni still have these keepsakes and use them as comfort throughout the long healing process that is still going on today. We aim to help Newtown, CT in this same way and want
them to know we will always be here to help.
