Mass Shooting At Elementary School In Uvalde, Texas Leaves At Least 21 Dead

Every day, parents across the nation send their children off to school with hopes of their kids laughing, learning for eight hours, and having good days with friends and teachers.

These were the same hopes that the parents of Robb Elementary students in Uvalde, Texas had on the morning of Tuesday May 24, 2022, not knowing that those brief hugs goodbye would be their last. 21 people died that day—19 grade school children and two teachers—when a gunman armed with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle opened fire. The amount of collective grief that the nation is facing is almost too much to bear, as is the frustration over the exorbitant lack of action in congress to regulate gun laws allowing tragedies like this to continue. And with it being the second largest school massacre since Sandy Hook, along with it being the second mass shooting in our country this month, many are feeling hopeless.

Many of us are us wondering—again—how we got here, and we're all just hoping our kids come home alive at the end of the day.

Sometimes the best way to heal is through helping and being of service to others. It's an immediate form of action that serves purpose in assisting those that need it the most. And while there are hundreds of donation options circulating in response to Uvalde, we compiled a vetted list for our readers to choose from below.
