John Legend and Chrissy Teigen donate $25,000 to students organising ‘March For Our Lives’ protest

Earlier this week, we told you about the courageous students organising a march to protest the gun laws in America.

Gucci became the first brand to publically and financially support the March For Our Lives movement, and now John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have rather wonderfully followed suit by donating $25,000…

“We support the students,” John Legend told AP Entertainment.

“We’re proud of the students. We’ve already sent them money.

“We sent them $25,000 to help with whatever costs they have for organizing, and we believe that our gun culture needs to change in America.”

The singer also had a few things to say about the changes that need to be made to make sure gun-related tragedies such as the devastating Parkland shooting don’t happen again…

“We stand out among other major countries in the world when it comes to these types of massacres, but also in the everyday gun violence that people have to deal with.”

“We stand out among other major countries in the world when it comes to these types of massacres, but also in the everyday gun violence that people have to deal with,” he added.

“I don’t think that we should accept that as normal. I think we’ve decided that everyone having unfettered access to guns is more important than all of us being safe, and I think we need to reshape that balance a bit so that we’re all more safe.

“I don’t want our kids to keep going to these shooter drills, and all these other things that I can’t even believe kids are dealing with right now.”

“I don’t want our kids to keep going to these shooter drills, and all these other things that I can’t even believe kids are dealing with right now.

“They shouldn’t have to deal with that. But I’m glad these kids from Parkland are saying enough is enough, and we support them.”

Well said!

We can’t wait to see what other famous faces get behind the cause.
