We are families of over two decades of previous mass shootings from across this country. Our hearts are breaking for the victims and survivors of the mass shootings in Lewiston, Maine shooting where 18 people were murdered, 13 were wounded on October 25, 2023.
We are the same families of previous mass shootings who collected donations for the victims/survivors of the Allen (TX) outlet mall shooting, the Uvalde (TX) school shooting, and the mass shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs (CO), and many others. We have always ensured that 100% went directly to them. We will do the same again for our new, unfortunate mass shooting family in Lewiston.
Our families of previous mass shootings have been re-victimized when nonprofits say they are collecting donations for victims but do not actually give donations directly to victims. VictimsFirst's philosophy is very different. We believe in full transparency, honoring donor intent and providing the victims the opportunity to choose for themselves how to spend your generous financial gifts meant for them.
We, VictimsFirst have started this fund so the victims’ families and those wounded and those present are protected from fraud and exploitation. You can read more about what we do and who we are at www.victimsfirst.org.
VictimsFirst will work with local victim advocates to distribute these funds. If this country’s leading expert Jeff Dion is called upon, we will work with him and grant the donations to a trusted organization which creates a centralized victims fund that guarantees 100% will go directly to victims.
We take no admin fee and we take no portion of your donation for our administration costs.
Thank you for your compassion and kindness. All donations will be designated specifically for the victims of the Lewiston mass shootings. VictimsFirst's EIN is 32-0656956.
