Celebrity couple John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are joining the likes of Oprah Winfrey and George and Amal Clooney in supporting survivors of the Parkland, Florida, high school shooting.
The Blast reported that the singer and his cookbook author and TV personality wife donated $25,000 to March for Our Lives, the group started by some survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
“We support the students,” Legend told The Associated Press Feb. 27. “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.”
On Feb. 14, a 19-year-old former student opened fire at the school, killing 17 people and injuring many others. He has been changed with 17 counts of premeditated murder.
