Pray For Orlando

UPDATED: This money from this campaign will be going to Equality Florida  to get this money as close to the victims as possible.

After speaking with Equality Florida via Facebook, they informed me of the following:

"We are working with a team of attorneys and experts, including the National Center for Victims of Crime, which deployed funds in both the Chattanooga and Aurora shootings, to ensure funds are distributed correctly. Victim names are still being released and our team is working to identify all injured and deaths as they have in other regions which have suffered from similar horrific tragedies.

As this information is not yet released, our objective is to raise as much as we can for these victims and ultimately ensure these funds are distributed as fast as possible. "

This fundraiser is being managed by Things Floridians Like , LLC. I am a UCF alumni and founding member of the company and will ensure that every dollar goes to the cause. I have worked to raise money for other nonprofits such as Florida Abolitionist and Children's Miracle Network in the past.

Please consider donating, every bit helps.

There is also an urgent need for O Negative, O Positive and AB Plasma blood donors. You can find blood donation locations here

Early in the morning of June 12, a man committed a mass shooting in the Orlando area leaving over 50 killed and over 50 injured, making this the worst mass shooting in US history.

The attacker fired shots around 2 a.m. at Pulse Nightclub. He took a number of people hostage and police were able to stop the attacker around 5 a.m.

We have decided to have all funds raised go to Equality Florida to ensure that these funds get as close to the victims as possible. Here is the message I received from Equality Florida this morning:

"We are working with a team of attorneys and experts, including the National Center for Victims of Crime, which deployed funds in both the Chattanooga and Aurora shootings, to ensure funds are distributed correctly. Victim names are still being released and our team is working to identify all injured and deaths as they have in other regions which have suffered from similar horrific tragedies.

As this information is not yet released, our objective is to raise as much as we can for these victims and ultimately ensure these funds are distributed as fast as possible."

Thank you for all of your continued support

There is already 2 GoFundMe fundraisers started. This would make it 3. I think people would be better off donating to the original one started. I hope this isn't a shady attempt to "cash in" on such a tragedy ??? I agree with Joshua Andrew too. Just sayin.

I agree with the others about this gofundme being a fraud. There is no reason this man would have to collect money for Equality Florida when they already have an official gofundme. I urge everyone to report this gofundme for being fraudulent. It's easier to report on a computer than your phone, fyi.

Thank you for your concerns, GoFundMe has tight controls when it comes to releasing funds and I have been in contact with both Equality Florida and the GoFundMe team to ensure the authenticity of myself and this campaign. A screenshot of email verification from the GoFundMe team can be found here: http://imgur.com/5B58qXQ Equality Florida has been listed as the beneficiary of this money and I personally will never see a penny! I have a proven track record of raising money for the Orlando community and am doing this on behalf of my company, Things Floridians Like. Your concerns are valid, hope this clears things up. Thank you

This is in memory of my brother and all the victims from this horrific act. They were all too young!!!! As a mom, myself, my heart just broke into a thousand pieces... I couldn't imagine being in that position. My heart, as well as my husbands, goes out to all the families of every single victim. This was an act that should never have taken place!
