This past weekend, the city of Orlando stared into the face of tragedy at the hands of intolerance. Since the night of the event, we have watched our city, nation, and others across the world come together in a breathtaking fashion to end hate and be with the victims and their families. People have put forth their time, money, thoughts, prayers, and more, selflessly, to help those affected.
Our city needs our help. Steadfast Brand has created a design that is now available for pre-order on men's and women's styles and accessories. An example of the design can be seen below.
100% of the proceeds from these products will go to the victims and their families to aid with hospital bills, funeral costs, and additional expenses raised by this event.
If merch isn't your thing, there are still plenty of ways available for you to do your part. Equality Florida has set up a GoFundMe page (which you can find here) that will also benefit those affected. There is a variety of OneBlood centers that need your donations for the victims still in critical condition. You can find a donation bus/center closest to you here. In the tattoo world of Orlando, Cast Iron Tattoos and Ascension Tattoo will be doing doing select tattoos and piercings to benefit the victims and families affected by the tragedy. 100% of all the proceeds will be donated to The National Compassion Fund. You can find more information about Cast Iron's event here, and Ascension's here.
Keep Orlando in your thoughts and prayers during this time, and help us to come together to end intolerance and hatred.
Ink Mania Con Tattoo and Art Expo will be hosted in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida from July 29th-31st!! This incredible event, which was held in West Palm Beach last year, has returned under new management and with a new name.
