Our hearts are with Newtown today and always

As mothers, the tragedy in Newtown hits incredibly close to home. It is almost impossible to comprehend what happened, and we can only imagine the deep pain, confusion and grief that no family should ever feel, much less amidst the holiday season. One senseless act of violence; thousands of dreams shattered; innocence stolen.

If you feel compelled to help financially, there are a number of ways to do so. Please join us today in remembering the precious lives that were lost, the heroic teachers and first responders and the families left with broken hearts.


Ashley Angelico
Ashley is the Co-Owner of New Orleans Mom, Red Stick Mom and Lafayette Mom, now the largest network of parenting websites in South Louisiana. Proud graduates of the University of Virginia, she and her husband Blaise spent time in Tampa and Scottsdale prior to settling down back home in New Orleans, something they both said "would never happen." An avid runner, she'll try any workout at least once and is always up for sweating with friends. When she’s not shuttling her 3 very active kids to school, gymnastics or baseball, you can find her cheering for the Saints, trying new restaurants or spending time with family and friends. She's also not afraid to return mediocre books to the library before finishing them because life is too short for bad books. A native New Orleanian, Ashley loves exploring and discovering the beauty of South Louisiana through her growing children's eyes.
