Like the rest of the nation, I was saddened to learn about another school shooting on Feb. 14, this time at South Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, that left 17 students, teachers and staff members dead.
My condolences go out to the families and friends who lost their loved ones in this tragedy. Ki-ele is committed to supporting them and making sure they have the resources to deal with the trauma. To help, we are donating 50 percent of sales of Ki-ele’s “Florida State stud” during the month of March to “Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dogs”. Funding will help make the dogs available at counseling centers and vigils in Parkland, Fla., to serve as special grief counselors and assist in the grieving and healing process .
