Over 500 people need treatment and at least another 50 others are dead following the biggest mass shooting in U.S. history. The senseless act of violence occurred last night on the Las Vegas Strip at Route 91 Harvest, as a man opened fire on 20,000 music festival attendees, across the street from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay casino-hotel.
Though all of our hearts go out to the victims, family, and loved ones of those affected — sometimes thoughts and prayers just don’t feel like enough.
If you’re looking to help out following the Las Vegas Strip shooting, there are ways to do so from near and far. There is a desperate need for blood donations in Las Vegas and surrounding areas in Nevada. A simple check-in, or a retweet can also make a difference.
Here are a few other ways you can help the Las Vegas victims…
