The US has been gripped in mourning for the victims of a number of mass shootings. Now a famous couple has offered to donate to organizations that are assisting the victims.

A few days after the recent mass shooting, the “Fixer Upper” stars Chip and Joanna Gaines have reached out to offer monetary assistance to the victims. Around 38 people have been killed in mass shootings in recent weeks.

Many more people were also injured. The Gaines’ took to their company Magnolia Market’s social media accounts to share their news.

In a statement, the pair wrote that they would be donating sales profits made last weekend to organizations that are assisting the victims and their families.

THE GAINES OFFER THEIR HELP

Communities in Texas, Ohio, California, and Mississippi would be assisted. The couple shared that they were helping because: “Our hearts are breaking and we feel the need to quickly offer whatever tangible support we can.”

However, that’s not all the Gaines are willing to do. They shared that in Waco they would be “organizing a blood drive” for their company’s employees and visitors.

The pair also pleaded with others to donate to the Red Cross if they wanted to share “kindness and love.” The United States Gun Violence Archive revealed that from July 25, 57 people have died in mass shootings across the US.

Both companies have agreed to make donations to the Dayton, and El Paso, Texas communities. For those who wish to assist but have no funds available, they can donate blood to the Red Cross.

The organization shared that the country was currently undergoing a shortage.

LADY GAGA'S MESSAGE OF SUPPORT

Last Friday, Lady Gaga reached out to those affected by the shootings by writing a heartfelt statement to them. She pleaded with survivors to seek help if they were struggling and urged the nation to be "there for each other and ourselves."
