#PrayforOrlando and how to help

The swag giveaway is HERE



(CNN)Hundreds of people have answered the call, waiting in line to give blood to help the victims in the Orlando, Florida, terror attack, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

So many that OneBlood, the local blood bank, met its needs for Sunday, according to Pat Michaels, a spokesman who spoke to CNN affiliate WFTV.

But the organization will need blood in the coming days, especially for the rarer types -- O negative, O positive and AB plasma, says Michaels.

You can help the victims with monetary donations, as well. Equality Florida, a nonprofit LGBT civil rights organization, has set up a GoFundMe account for the victims and their families. Equality Florida spokesperson Ida Vishkaee Eskamani says all of the money donated will go the relatives. The initial goal was $500,000 which was met in just hours. Now the goal is $1 million. "We've gotten responses from folks all over the world," says Eskamani.

The global nonprofit organization Planting Peace has set up a site for donations on CrowdRise. The money donated will help cover the funeral and medical costs of the victims. The goal is $100,000.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said that relatives of victims who need information can call a special hotline at (407) 246-4357.

Impact Your World will continue to look for ways you can help.
