Here's how you can help.

Since its release, Rachel Platten's Fight Song has been an enduring anthem for overcoming adversity.

And in the wake of the senseless shooting at Orlando's gay club Pulse that killed 49 people and injured dozens, the inspirational track has taken on an even more meaningful message.

On Friday, the singer released an acoustic version of the successful single, announcing that all proceeds will be donated to the National Compassion Fund.

This contribution is legit, since the NCF's website explains that all of the funds they get are given directly to the victims, and it works closely with Equality Florida, to make sure that the distribution of donations is "fair and transparent."

The musician took to Instagram to make the announcement, posting:

Remembering Cecil The Lion A Year After His Tragic Death — Find Out Where His Cubs AND His Killer Are Now!

We can't believe it's been a year.

As you surely remember, Cecil the Lion was mercilessly killed by an American dentist at the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe on July 1, 2015.

Now, a year to the day later, we have some great news about the majestic wild animal that was taken too soon in honor of the anniversary of his death.

While Cecil's brother Jericho was initially thought to be dead, not only has he survived the entire year without the leader of the pride… but all three of his lionesses and all seven of his cubs are alive as well!

Unfortunately, not everyone is as excited about Cecil's family thriving — in fact, the lion's shooter Dr. Walter Palmer doesn't seem to care at all!

According to a Daily Mail report, the Minnesota dentist was actually spotted driving around Minneapolis in his brand new $120,000 Porsche Cayenne Turbo this week, smiling and laughing.

So sad that no one can even charge him with a crime after all this!

In just the past couple months, we've seen the slaughter of both Harambe the Gorilla and Juma the Jaguar, so there's clearly more work to do in regards to wildlife preservation.

Rest in peace, Cecil, Harambe, and Juma.

Did Two Of Prince's Doctors Cross The Line & Contribute To The Singer's Fatal Drug Overdose? Here's What Police Are Working On Now!

Prince

It may be several months before we know exactly what led to Prince's fatal overdose back in April.

As the criminal death investigation rages on, TMZ reports three agencies — the FBI, the DEA, and the Carver County District Attorney's Office — are all working together to determine if two of the 57-year-old's doctors crossed the line with giving Prince access to drugs.

The medical professionals in question? We've told you their names before, physician Dr. Michael Schulenberg and addiction specialist Dr. Howard Kornfeld.

As a refresher, Schulenberg and Kornfeld's son Andrew were both present in the Purple Rain musician's home when he was found dead in his elevator after OD'ing on Fentanyl. Andrew had tons of synthetic opiates to treat addiction in his possession.

Since the tragic passing, Schulenberg has not been working at his clinic while poppa Kornfeld continues to practice at his Marin County, CA office.

If the state files charges against either or both of the doctors, the case will go to the District Attorney instead of the grand jury.

Woof. We're just hoping for some concrete answers sooner rather than later.

Disney Has Quietly Removed All Animated Crocodiles & Alligators From Theme Park Following Death Of 2-Year-Old

| Filed under: R.I.P.DisneySad SadCrocodilesAlligatorViral: Animals

We still can't believe this tragic story actually happened at the happiest place on earth.

As you're surely aware, 2-year-old Lane Graves was killed by an alligator while wading in the water at Disney World's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa two weeks ago.

While the kid-friendly theme park has since added fences, signs, and even a net around the lagoon where Lane was dragged underwater, Disney is now doing even more to make families feel safe.

According to numerous firsthand accounts from fans, the House of Mouse has quietly wiped all traces of their animated alligators and crocodiles from the park.

We already knew that Jungle Cruise operators had removed a croc-inspired joke from the ride, but now we're hearing that characters like Louis from The Princess & The Frog, Tick Tock Croc from Peter Pan, and Brutus and Nero from The Rescuers are nowhere to be seen as well.

This does seem like the decent thing to do, at least while the Graves family is still in mourning.

With that said, we're hearing the real alligators inside Epcot's Living with the Land aren't going anywhere… which doesn't make much sense.

Do U think Disney is going overboard by removing any signs of the reptiles??
