According to the Gun Violence Archive, the United States has surpassed 500 mass shootings in 2023 alone. While acts of violence continue to rise, direct financial assistance for victims and survivors is drastically declining. Victims of these horrific events of mass violence need assistance both financially, physically and emotionally.
AngeLink has partnered with VictimsFirst to fundraise to support their National Mass Shooting Victims’ Fund. Your donation will ensure that every victim – past, present, and future – will receive the direct financial assistance they require.
Make sure to include the following in your AngeLink fundraiser description:
Who are you raising money for? If for an organization, what is their mission?
How have they been directly affected by this tragedy?
Where are they located?
How will they use the funds?
Please note that if you’re raising funds for an individual or organization, you may be responsible for personally transferring funds raised to the beneficiary. If so, describe how funds will be delivered to the beneficiary.
*AngeLink currently operates in the U.S.A and does not accept donations or fundraisers launched by individuals from locations outside of the U.S.A.
We understand that healing is a multifaceted journey. To aid victims of shootings, we’ve compiled a list of resources for recovery and healing:
Help connect friends, family, and your community with trained professionals who specialize in trauma and mental health to address the emotional impact of the incident.
Access support for legal matters and advocacy to ensure victims’ rights are protected.
Recommend local or online support groups for victims to connect with others who have experienced similar trauma.
Discover resources that can help victims with medical bills, therapy costs, and other financial burdens.
Learn about gun safety, preventative measures, and strategies to address the issue on a broader scale.
Safety is paramount when it comes to shootings and gun violence. Make sure you know how to keep yourself and your family safe if you ever find yourself in a dangerous scenario.
Develop an emergency action plan for your home and workplace by identifying escape routes, conducting active shooter drills, and establishing a system of reporting suspicious behavior.
Pay attention to your surroundings and the people in your vicinity.
As best you can, stay calm and try to remain as quiet as possible. If you can escape, leave the area immediately and help those closest to you do the same. If escape isn’t possible, find a place to hide.
If possible, call 911. Provide accurate details about your location and a description of the shooter(s) if you can.
Follow law enforcement instructions and provide as much information as possible. Report any injuries or medical needs right away.
Continue to keep yourself informed and updated with periodical review of your safety plan. Encourage friends, family, and colleagues to do the same.
