Minot couple uses wristbands to support mental health of Las Vegas survivors

MINOT, N.D. - A Minot couple that survived the Las Vegas shooting is now doing their part to help other survivors cope with what happened.

Laura Schnieberbruns and Casey Bruns are now selling wristbands to support the victims of the shooting.

The couple, who narrowly escaped the shooting themselves, ordered 10,000 wristbands the say "Vegas Strong Forever."

The wristbands cost $5, and survivors of the shooting who are no longer in Nevada can use the proceeds to go towards the costs of mental health treatment.

They just have to message Laura on Facebook or the group they have set up called "Victim, Survivor, the Voice" for details.

“The people that I'm working with, that's their biggest fear right now, is there are some people that are out there that cannot deal with this. They cannot handle it. They do not have the insurance to pay for the mental health treatment, for the PTSD awareness, and we just don't want to lose any more,” she said.

There will also be a vigil in Minot on Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. for the victims of the shooting.

Minot will be one of roughly 115 cities across the country holding a vigil at that same time.

Guests are encouraged to bring their own candle for the vigil.
