American Muslims Respond:
Fundraiser for Victims' Families

#Muslims4Pulse

At least 50 people were killed and 50 more wounded in Orlando, Florida where a gunman went on a horrific shooting spree at Orlando's Pulse Nightclub. Gay clubs hold a significant place in LGBTQ history. They were often the only safe gathering place and this horrific act strikes directly at our sense of safety. Far too many Orlando families lost their loved ones in a deplorable act of violence. This is why a collective of American Muslim leaders and groups have united to raise funds for the victims' families.

We wish to respond to evil with good, as our faith instructs us, and send a powerful message of compassion through action. Our Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said: "Have mercy to those on earth, and the One in the Heavens (God) will have mercy upon you." And the Quran teaches to "Repel evil by that which is better" (41:34).

All fundraising proceeds will help with the immediate, short-term needs of the grieving families. No amount of money will bring back their loved ones, but we do hope to lessen their burden in some way.

HOW FUNDS WILL BE DISTRIBUTED:

Thank you for supporting the victims and the families of victims of this tragic attack. 

CAIR Florida will send 100% of funds collected through this campaign to the victims and the families of the victims to support and help those families most affected by the tragic events that unfolded on June 12, 2016 in our community.   

Though this is a Muslim-led campaign, we welcome our friends of other faiths to also contribute. 

We ask for American Muslim mosques, Imams, leaders, and groups to endorse and promote this initiative. Official endorsers of the campaign are only required to help promote it via email and social media. For media inquiries please email labdelaziz@cair.com.
