NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — A former Sandy Hook Elementary School student is launching a second annual series of remembrances to honor the 20 children and six educators who were fatally shot in December 2012.

The News-Times reports that based on last year’s success, Ashley Petersen and supporters are launching the second annual 26 Days of Kindness beginning Wednesday and ending Dec. 14, the second anniversary of the shootings.

People who participate in the 26 Days of Kindness are encouraged to perform a charitable act in the spirit of the person remembered that day.

One Sandy Hook shooting victim will be remembered each day. Wednesday is dedicated to Lauren Rousseau, a teacher at Sandy Hook.

Petersen will post details of the event on the Facebook page 26 Days of Kindness .
