Many of you have heard of Jon Meis, the hero of the Seattle Pacific University shooting yesterday. For those of you who haven't been following the story, Mr. Meis, who was the building monitor used pepper spray to subdue the shooter and then he and other tackled and restrained him while waiting for the police to arrive.
Mr. Meis is getting married in two weeks. Local Seattle people found out and bought out their online gift registry, so someone has started a GoFundMe account to help pay for their honeymoon.
Edited: Thanks to Toyotabob7 who has heard of Jessamyn McIntrye, who is a producer at a local news station and a sideline reporter at WSU Cougar games - so this site is legit.
For those of you so inclined, let's give this young man and his wife-to-be the honeymoon they never even dreamed of having!
Also, as of right now (7:45 PDT), they have raised almost $9,500 for their honeymoon. Maybe if this catches on enough nationally, they'll be able to buy themselves a house!

On a related noted, one of the young men injured in the shooting was able to go home today.
Peace to all.
8:52 AM PT: Update: We have now raised almost $10,800! Let's keep the $$$ rolling in!
