A-movers Support Orlando

Hi A-movers,

As many of you are probably aware of by now, there was a horrible attack on the gay community in Orlando, Florida this past weekend. I am deeply horrified, saddened, and angrier than I've been in recent memory.

I was born and raised in the sunshine state. I love my home and my fellow friends and neighbors. It has been nothing short of moving seeing how the local Orlando community has immediately acted to help those caught in the wake of this attack.

I know the community is a diverse and compassionate group of gamers. Please consider donating to Equality Florida's GoFundMe. Because the good people of the world always outweigh the bad, reports are coming in that blood banks are at capacity, but banks are asking for donors to return in the following days.

For more information on how to help please see this piece by TIME. Thank you all for doing what you can to help my neighbors, friends, and family.
