The Chicago Sports Alliance isn’t just issuing statements. It’s taking action.
The group of five Chicago pro sports teams (Bears, Bulls, Cubs, White Sox, and Blackhawks) have donated $300,000 to the Robb School Memorial Fund and the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation, a national nonprofit organization that hopes to end school shootings.
“It is our responsibility to those innocent lives lost to do more,” the group said. “We are committed to making a difference through our responses in this gun violence epidemic. Lives depend on it. This is not a game.”
We all need to do more. We can do more. Hopefully, more will lend their voices to the cries for change — and will donate some money to the effort to bring it to fruition.
