Orange Ribbons For Jaime

$151,850 of $500,000 goal

Raised by 2,070 people in 12 months
Our daughter was Jaime Guttenberg.   Her older brother was Jesse.  She was murdered in Parkland Florida on February 14, 2018.  She was a beautiful, kind and intelligent teenage girl.  She danced with tremendous grace, had an amazing smile, and loved to laugh.  She was supposed to have her whole life ahead of her but it was cut short.  We are all devastated.

We have create a 501(C)(3) foundation called Orange Ribbons for Jaime.   The purpose of our organization will be to support causes important to Jaime in life, but also causes that will deal with why her life was cut short.  We will look to make donations in the world of dance, and to organizations that deal with bullying and children with special needs.  However, we will also support organizations that deal with the causes of violence in schools and other public facilities and on how to limit casualties associated with the violence.

A little background behind the name Orange Ribbons. Jaime's favorite color was orange.  Her dance studio friends who loved her very much decided to honor her memory by wearing orange ribbons.  Because of Jaime's love of dance and the dance worlds love of Jaime, the orange ribbon spread through dance studios around the nation and the world and through Broadway.  About 2 weeks after Jaime was murdered, we learned that orange also happens to be the universal color of the gun safety movement.  With that, our hope is to make the Orange Ribbon the symbol of the gun safety movement.  My hope is that all people who care about public safety from guns will help me to do this.

Thank you for all the love and support. Please help spread the word. May Jaime’s memory be a blessing.
