Hello, everyone! This year for Project for Awesome, I'm supporting a charity that's very important to me: Everytown for Gun Safety. They are working to end the epidemic that is gun violence in America and they need all of the help they can get.

[various newscasters reporting on shootings]
On average, 100 Americans are killed by guns every day.
In the United States, mass shootings have become our new normal.
Since January 1st of 2019 alone, there have been more than 370 mass shootings, with more than 180 being fatal. 441 Americans were killed this year as a result of gun violence, and we as a nation are ignoring the solution to this issue.
Canada has had two mass shootings this year.
Australia has had two.
The United Kingdom has had zero.
What are we doing wrong?
We lack common-sense gun laws.
Everytown for Gun Safety is working to make these laws a reality, and they need your support. Their platform centers around establishing better background checks, disarming domestic abusers, combating daily gun violence, protecting kids and communities, and holding the gun industry accountable.
"Who in God's name needs a weapon that can handle 100 rounds?"
"We have to make it so that moms have better things to worry about than demanding action on gun safety."
A donation to Everytown goes toward pressuring lawmakers to improve gun laws, educating the public about responsible gun ownership, and so much more.

"And they are sick and tired of the violence. They are sick and tired of the fear."
"More guns lead to more mass shootings."
"Arming more people, to do what, I think is not the appropriate response to terrorism."
Let’s make America safe. Happy Project for Awesome, and DFTBA.
Thanks For Watching! Hope You Enjoy!
