It’s been a rough week for all of. Mourning the tragic loss of 49 victims at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando has really shaken the world. But none of us can even begin to understand the pain the families of the victims must be experiencing right now.
If you’re wondering how you can help and donate to Orlando, here are five places that will directly aid Orlando relief.
1) EQUALITY FL
“Equality Florida has pledged to use 100% of the money donated to help victims and their families.” They are currently at $5.2 million (with a goal of $7 million). Any and everything helps!
This is the official Pulse Victims Fund page for Equality Florida, the state’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization. Equality Florida is collecting contributions via this GoFundMe page to support every single victim of the horrific shooting at Orlando’s Pulse Nightclub. This includes victims’ families, survivors, and those in the club who may not have suffered physical injury but in need of support.
Everytown will connect you with your local senator so you can talk in person or send a voicemail to help close deathly loopholes that let dangerous people get guns.
Off the topic of gun reform, you can sign this petition that goes directly to your local senator and congress people.
5) ONE ORLANDO
The Fund will support:
Nonprofits that are supporting the victims and families
The LGBTQ, Hispanic, faith and other affected communities
Underlying causes of this tragic event
Other needs we cannot anticipate until we face them
