Two Grand Rapids museums are working to help the victimes of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy.The Grand Rapids Children's Museum and the Grand Rapids Art Museum are both giving a portion of their admission proceeds this Saturday to help build a museum in Newtown.

On Saturday, $1 of every admission into the museums will be donated toward The Ever Wonder Children's Museum in Newtown, Connecticut.

The Ever Wonder Museum is a new installation in Newtown, and Grand Rapids wanted to raise money for the group.

According to FOX-17, the idea came from one of the children of a board director at GR's Children's Museum who said they wanted to help the grieving kids of Newtown.

The Grand Rapids Public Museum is also helping out by putting a collection basket out for those who want to donate. There will also be a place to donate extra money for anyone who comes into the other museums.
