According to a Facebook post by Barbara Kraushaar at We Are Newtown, this past weekend, Ricci’s Salon stylists Leah and Taylor collected $500 for a Starbucks card, then contacted the Starbucks in Roseburg, Ore., and asked them to put it toward treating customers there, until it runs out. It’s their way of paying it forward, responding to the many ways that Newtown and Sandy Hook residents were graciously treated in the weeks following 12/14. Roseburg, I’m sure you’re aware, suffered a mass shooting at Umpqua Community College, Thursday, October 1.
