Gucci Donates $500,000 To Gun Control Student Protest "March For Our Lives"


One the leading and most popular retail brands in the world has made a generous donation $500,000 to March For Our Lives. The organization was created by students who “will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic mass school shootings.”

“We stand with March for Our Lives and the fearless students across the country who demand that their lives and safety become a priority,” the Italian fashion house tells WWD. “We have all been directly or indirectly impacted by these senseless tragedies.”

The organization will be marching the streets in Washington next month and the protest is extra importance since the tragic Florida high school shooting that took place last week killing 17 and injuring 14. 

“I am truly moved by the courage these students,” Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele added. “My love is with them, and it will be next to them on March 24. I am standing with March for Our Lives and the strong young women and men across the United States who are fighting for their generation and those to come.”
