#THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS: COMFORTING TWEETS FROM POWERFUL HYPOCRITES
In response to the Pulse Nightclub shooting, our nation’s most powerful pro-gun lawmakers took to Twitter to express their deepest sympathies once again.
In an effort to take action I pitched an idea to create #ThoughtsAndPrayers: Comforting Tweets from Powerful Hypocrites, a collection of condolences from pro-gun politicians who have the power to do something about gun violence, but choose hollow words instead. All proceeds go to the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, turning these thoughts and prayers into something that can actually make a difference.
The books have raised almost $20,000 and even sparked interest from Sarah Silverman who agreed to donate her own tweet as the foreword.
