The students from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, have already proven themselves to be an impressive group of young people, especially after some stood up to Marco Rubio on national television for kowtowing too much to the NRA, and now anyone looking to show their support for these teenagers and honor the victims of the mass shooting can donate to a GoFundMe campaign that was set up for the school’s journalism program. The GoFundMe page is looking to raise $30,000, and a post from Stoneman Douglas’ newspaper adviser explains that the money will be used to pay for a special issue of the school paper that “commemorates the victims and highlights the student and faculty heroes.”
The newspaper program is fully self-funded and doesn’t get any money from the school distract, so normal issues of the paper are paid for with ads, but the students on staff don’t want to have to include ads in this edition—which should be perfectly understandable. Any money collected over the goal will be used to pay for new computers and cameras that the newspaper and yearbook programs.
