Help for Orlando LGBT massacre

Early Sunday morning June 12th a shooter armed with a semiautomatic rifle entered the LGBTQ nightclub PULSE in Orlando and opened fire, killing 50 and injuring even more.
This fund is for the victims and their families of this horrific massacre. 100% of this money will go to helping those involved with Medical bills , Funeral costs, and any other unforeseen expense they may face in this upcoming time. Equality Florida Action, Inc ( will be making sure the funds are distributed properly.

This tragedy hits close to home for me, I grew up not far from Orlando and as a (gay) former Florida resident, I have friends who lost loved ones that night.

Please give what you can, every bit helps and will go directly to the victim's families and loved ones.
