UCF Sigma Nu Raising Money For Victims Of Orlando Terror Attack

UCF Sigma Nu

This weekend, Orlando was hit by the worst mass shooting in US history, and the worst terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11. In the wake of this attack, many people have stepped up to do something about it, because that’s the goddamn American spirit.

Among them is the UCF Sigma Nu chapter, which put up this Tilt to raise money to support victims of the shooting.

From their project description:

We are shocked and saddened that most deadly shooting in American history took place here in Orlando this morning. Our prayers and support are with those involved, but we as brothers would like to do something more. All fees on this Tilt have been waived so all the money raised through this campaign will be donated to an organization better able to help those affected by this attack.

This was difficult for me to write about, because I recently did a college program at Disney World and knew many of the people affected by the shooting, including several of the deceased.

If you’re arguing about gun control on Facebook right now, or posting outraged, self-indulgent Tweets, you’re not really helping anyone. Do like these Sigma Nus did. Give money, or, if you’re in the Orlando area, go give blood. There’s a huge shortage, and they’re desperate for it.

I’d actually like to see this get bigger. Let’s come together as Greeks nationwide and pour so much money and support into this thing that it’ll be like the sleeping giant that awoke after Pearl Harbor, holding down those ISIS bastards and prison-bombing their assholes with the USS Missouri.

All money raised by Sigma Nu will be donated to The Center Orlando.

    Of course the news networks don’t have room for the sorts of stories on their telecasts, just the incredibly rare “frat boy does _______ awful awful bad bad” they use to malign an organization literally built on philanthropy.

      Who gives a shit if they aren’t getting recognized by the media? Just be happy the victims are getting the help they deserve.

    Good on these gentleman. I wish more people would use the energy they spend on trying to politicize this tragedy to actually help those affected.

    When is the US actually gonna start doing shit about this? We talk a big game but we can’t (or maybe won’t) do diddly fucking shit about anything. I’m sick and fucking tired of this bullshit happening on our soil while those goat fuckers get to do whatever the fuck they want to the rest of the world. Sack up USA and UN. You got a war comin, and I’m doubtful of the outcome.

      And I’m sorry I got off topic. This is fucking fantastic, and makes me proud to be a Sigma Nu.

      The popular opinion seems on Twitter seems to be blaming guns, not ISIS. Fuck ISIS, and fuck our fucked up society that can’t discern what is and is not a problem.

        It’s also pretty common to say that it was just a hate crime, not an act of terrorism. People are just ignorant fucks.

    The Greek community at UCF as a whole is very much coming together to do what we often look past doing, which is the right thing. Damn proud to be a knight and Orlando resident.
