I live in Charleston, SC. Last Wednesday, nine people were massacred in my city. More people survived who will never, ever be the same. Families woke up last Wednesday whole. Now they’re not.

NO OPINION I HAVE IS GOING TO CHANGE THAT.

Rather than give another set of opinions about what happened or how to fix my city, I’ve compiled a comprehensive list of ways you can help the families of the Charleston shooting victims, concrete things you can actually DO to make a difference for the people of Charleston.
