Pulse DJ Assistance

It's with great sadness to share with you all that three talented DJs were affected by the events that unfolded early Sunday Morning at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

Three Entertainers have experienced life long injuries both mentally and physically. Ray Rivera was performing on the outside patio when the shooting began. Also involved in the heartbreak was Kraig "DJ Flawless" Matthews and Simon "DJSimon2001" Roman-Barria.

They are all putting on strong faces, but as a community, it's our job to comfort those effected as much as we can. Regardless of the visible scars we can only begin to imagine the internal scars that may take forever to heal for these men and women who were effected.

As our loving community has already shown, I too ask for your support in stepping forward and donating whatever your family can to ensure that Ray, Kraig and Simon will be able to cover necessities that we have all taken for granted. Your love and support is greatly appreciated in advance for these men who have brought such joy and comfort to others in the past.

GoFundMe has asked for additional information, so here is that information

3. Relationship with the parties

5. How we intend to get the funds to those in need

All parties will be able to download the funds directly from gofundme, or I will download the monies, and write them checks. I will cover all fees and expenses involved in getting the funds to these individuals.
