The Zinghoppers, a preschool pop band, has partnered with Snip-Its Haircuts for Kids in Franklin to help the children affected by the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.

The band has been collecting artwork from children around Middle Tennessee to send to the survivors.

"It just shows how kids know how other kids are feeling and [how] kids connect with other kids," Kitty Norton with The Zinghoppers told Nashville's News 2.

Snip-Its owner Robert Goldstein added, "You can just see with all these works of art that there's nothing better than that."

When 7-year-old Inigo Balbarada heard about helping the children of Sandy Hook, he immediately wanted to help.

"It was my mom who told me about Zinghoppers that wanted to deliver artwork to the kids who are very sad and who saw what happened in Connecticut so that's why I decided to take some from the Christmas tree," Balbarada told Nashville's News 2.

The young boy felt his family's Christmas decorations would make the children in Newtown happy.

The Zinghoppers are donating DVDs to the children of Sandy Hook Elementary School.

If your child would like to help out, the group is also still collecting cards and artwork to send to Newtown.

Artwork, drawings,and cards can be dropped off at Snip-Its located at 790 Jordan Road, Suite 108, Franklin, TN 37067 or mailed to The Zinghoppers at 1113 Murfreesboro Rd. Suite 106-343, Franklin, TN 37064
