The events of October 1st have left us heartbroken over the unprecedented violence that took place in our city. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families...but sometimes thoughts and prayers are not enough. We have been trying to determine how we can help and this fund has been set up with the intention of directly benefitting the children that have been impacted by this tragedy.
There are hundreds of lives that have been forever changed. Many children will need assistance with medical expenses, continued counseling and future planning in the coming days, weeks, months and years. Many perished. Many are recovering in local hospitals. Far too many will face their futures without one or both of their parents. The funds raised in this account will be directed to the recovery and rehabilitation of those children.
Special thanks to first responders who ran toward the danger to help. To all those that have contributed to other gofundme accounts for the victims, who woke up and immediately drove to the blood banks to donate, who opened their homes and offered a safe exit for those fleeing the scene…we thank you. Las Vegas is a strong community and we are coming together like never before. Continued prayers for all those lost and hurt. #PrayForVegas #VegasStrong
About Links for Life:
Since its inception in 1995, the Links for Life Foundation has remained dedicated to be the link of hope in the lives of disadvantaged children in our community. You can help make a difference by participating in or sponsoring one of the Links for Life events held throughout the year or by making a donation to the Foundation.
Founded and corporately sponsored by Colliers International of Las Vegas as a way for us to give back to our community, the Links for Life Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit charitable organization, and over the past 23 years, the Foundation has donated more than $2,500,000 to local children’s charities. Quite often donations from Links for Life serve as the bridge between what a charity has already raised and the realization of a specific goal here in Southern Nevada.
The goal of the Links for Life Foundation is to better the lives of the children in our communities. The people of our offices and their families and friends have joined together with a commitment to help local organizations make a difference in the lives of children.
