On June 12, the deadliest shooting in American history took place at the Orlando nightclub Pulse. The tragedy claimed the lives of 49 people and injured more than 53 others, and many celebrities, including Lady Gaga, Kelly Osbourne and Laverne Cox, as well as the female stars from the Vanderpump Rules cast have been showing their support for the victims and their families.
Kristen Doute, Stassi Schroeder, Katie Maloney and Scheana Shay have reacted to the horrific shooting by creating a GoFundMe page, WeHo Loves Orlando, to raise money for the families of those affected.
The fund was created by Doute on June 12, and reads, “In the spirit of LA Pride, we want to raise as much money as possible to donate to the Red Cross and to the families affected by the Orlando tragedy that occurred yesterday. Orlando, WeHo loves you and we are with you.”
Doute’s co-stars Schroeder, Maloney and Shay have stood in solidarity with those affected by the shooting, and have tweeted their support and encouraged fans to donate to the cause.
So far, 46 people have raised $3,216 of a proposed $10,000, and the page has been shared 202 times. If you wish to donate to the fund, or share to support the cause, you can do so here: https://www.gofundme.com/292fxxg
