TX Capitol Walkout for Gun Safety

$6,000 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 88 people in 6 months
We, the students of the greater Austin area in Texas, are hoping to participate in the nationwide walkout on April 20th, the anniversary of Columbine.  The TX Capitol Walkout is a walkout, march, and rally designed to bring together students, school teachers and staff, parents, and the general public, in support of gun law reform.  We have an end goal of sending a message to our elected leaders that we refuse to continue to stand by complacently as innocent lives are lost because of the state of gun violence in our nation.  We invite you to join us, to make your voice heard, and to protect the youth of America, both present and future.  

We need to fundraise in order to provide water, transportation, and ribbons for people who want to participate in the walkout and attend the rally.  We also need to raise funds for city permits, electricity, portable toilets, and equipment rental.  We have the support of superintendents, legislature, parents, and celebrities.  

Your donations will help this national movement to protect our nation's students.  Please help us create a safer country!

I am Cecilia Cosby, a chair person on the committee that is organizing this event.  I am managing our fundraising effort, and organizing transportation for several high schools.   The Go Fund Me account is linked to my personal account.  I will be responsible for distributing the funds to our organizers and providers. 

All funds will will be distributed by me.  All funds will be used for the purchase or rental of services that are directly related to the event.    All of the organizers are volunteering their time.

Hello donors! My name is Cecilia Cosby, the creator of this Go Fund Me page, and I wanted to give a quick, but very late(!), update of the walkout event.

Thanks to your support we were able to successfully fund the entire walkout event which, in turn, accommodated the thousands of participants at the march and rally! Thank you for showing your support in the movement to make this country a safer place.

In the end, we only ended up using 40% of the funds raised due to the unexpected generosity of the event venders. On our website, we stated that any remaining funds would be donated in equal parts to Texas Gun Sense and Education Austin; however, this plan was not present on the Go Fund Me page.

Due to the lack of information on the Go Fund Me page, we can refund 60% of your donation if you do not wish to donate to these organizations. Please email me at craycosby@yahoo.com with your mailing address and information by August 25th and we will send you a check in the mail.

Sorry for the miscommunication and thank you for supporting this event!
