On how to help after the tragedy in Las Vegas, from Fast Company, published 10/3/2017:
Because we don’t have universal healthcare in this country, Clark County Commission Chair Steve Sisolak set up a GoFundMe campaign to help pay for the healthcare costs of those injured in the massacre. Sisolak, who is running for governor as a Democrat, pitched in $10,000.
United Blood Services in Nevada is in need of blood donations, specifically O-negative donations, according to LifeStream. With so many victims still in critical condition, blood donations are the most pressing need. To find a local donation center head here.
Volunteers in Medicine of Southern Nevada provides healthcare for those typically without access.
Similarly, the American Red Cross does not need financial donations right now, but is encouraging people to donate blood. To make a blood donation appointment, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit www.redcrossblood.org online or call 1-800-RED CROSS."
This little nook on the interwebs launched in 2015,
to share a love of Las Vegas, support local businesses
and celebrate the great friends I made for a lifetime.
We are deeply saddened and horrified by the mass shooting that took
place, and by the tragedy and loss affecting so many.
What happens in Las Vegas
doesn't have to stay in Las Vegas.
Live like a local in Sin City.
Travel to Las Vegas and experience it like a local, you'll thank me. Residents don't hang out on the Strip. They spend time at great spots around Clark County, visiting award winning Pahrump Winery, the amazing Neon Museum or checking out the new restaurants in Downtown Las Vegas. Take a break from the overpriced "made for tourist" chaos of the Strip. Have a great time and feel good supporting local Las Vegas.
