BENEFITING: Brady Center To Prevent Gun Violence
EVENT DATE: Jan 18, 2016
A lot of people don’t know it, but in “real life,” like many of you, I am a victim of gun violence. See, I’m from South Side Chicago, and while I grew up knowing that gun violence has had a profound impact on my hometown, I never felt the impact so strongly as the day my brother was murdered walking on the sidewalk. I think about him every day. And whenever I hear about a life taken from gun violence my heart breaks.
So let’s do something about it! Join me in saying #ENOUGH and in raising the funds to help keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people through the Brady Center's campaigns to end gun violence.
Together we are on our way to cutting gun deaths in half by 2025 and saving lives everyday! I cooked up $25,000 for Brady, and now I want you to join me on Crowdrise to double the impact. Together we can match my $25,000 MasterChef Celebrity Showdown win and tell the lawmakers in Washington #ENOUGH. Thanks for joining my team to end gun violence!
