Students in Parkland, Florida, have organized a nationwide protest to push for gun control legislation after 17 of their classmates were murdered on Valentines Day. And now the donations are rolling in for March For Our Lives.
We want to express extreme gratitude for the amazing donation that George Clooney and his family have made to the #MarchForOurLives. We are overwhelmed with the support, and we can’t wait to march. #NeverAgain pic.twitter.com/h5xGZLNuZk— #NeverAgain (@NeverAgainMSD) February 20, 2018
SO EXCITED TO SAY THAT STEVEN SPIELBERG AND JEFFREY KATZENBERG EACH DONATED HALF A MILLION TO OUR CAUSE, WE LOVE JAWS AND SHREK— Sarah Chadwick// #NEVERAGAIN (@sarahchad_) February 20, 2018
George and Amal, I couldn’t agree with you more. I am joining forces with you and will match your $500,000 donation to ‘March For Our Lives.’ These inspiring young people remind me of the Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard.— Oprah Winfrey (@Oprah) February 20, 2018
They've already raised over a million dollars outside of those big celebrity donations. You can donate through their website, and if you plan to march, you might want a t-shirt to wear. Keep up with the plan's progress through Facebook or Twitter.
The students from Parkland are doing great things, although they are already confronting disappointment and attacks. Yet they are still high school students and do adorable things like this and this.
