John Legend & Chrissy Teigen Donate $25K to Students Organizing Gun Marches

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are the latest celebrities to come out in support of gun control following last month’s Florida school shooting. As where some stars are all talk, the couple recently donated a whopping $25,000 to students organizing marches against gun violence, according to an interview with the AP.

“I think that we’ve decided that everyone having unfettered access to guns is more important than all of us being safe,” he said of the American gun culture.

The Legends have also donated $200,000 to the Time’s Up Initiative, with Teigen saying it was “on behalf of the heroic gymnasts of the USA Gymnastics Team,” according to TIME.
