Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families of those affected by the recent and tragic shooting in Orlando.
If you or someone you know would like to offer assistance in this time of need, there are a number of groups and charities that have stepped forward that would gladly welcome your support. Please find two listed below.
As always, we encourage you to do additional research on ways to offer support in a manner that is most accessible to you.
Equality Florida is a 501c3 nonprofit organization and Florida state’s LGBT civil rights organization. Find out more on their website or on their GoFundMe page, which has raised over $1.7 million in funding for those affected by the shooting.
The American Red Cross continues to accept blood and platelet donations daily for disaster relief. They are providing a small number of blood products to support Florida hospitals in response to the shooting. Even if you are a California resident, and you are currently eligible to donate blood, you can donate today to provide relief support for future disasters.
