This weekend, Orlando was hit by the worst mass shooting in US history, and the worst terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11. In the wake of this attack, many people have stepped up to do something about it, because that’s the goddamn American spirit.
Among them is the UCF Sigma Nu chapter, which put up this Tilt to raise money to support victims of the shooting.
From their project description:
We are shocked and saddened that most deadly shooting in American history took place here in Orlando this morning. Our prayers and support are with those involved, but we as brothers would like to do something more. All fees on this Tilt have been waived so all the money raised through this campaign will be donated to an organization better able to help those affected by this attack.
This was difficult for me to write about, because I recently did a college program at Disney World and knew many of the people affected by the shooting, including several of the deceased.
If you’re arguing about gun control on Facebook right now, or posting outraged, self-indulgent Tweets, you’re not really helping anyone. Do like these Sigma Nus did. Give money, or, if you’re in the Orlando area, go give blood. There’s a huge shortage, and they’re desperate for it.
I’d actually like to see this get bigger. Let’s come together as Greeks nationwide and pour so much money and support into this thing that it’ll be like the sleeping giant that awoke after Pearl Harbor, holding down those ISIS bastards and prison-bombing their assholes with the USS Missouri.
All money raised by Sigma Nu will be donated to The Center Orlando..
