Manuel and Patricia Oliver's son Joaquin was one of the 17 victims in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas mass shooting on Valentine's Day in 2018.

Since then, the Olivers started a nonprofit organization named Change The Ref whose mission is to help end gun violence, promote gun reform, and empower young people, our country’s future leaders.

The Olivers are baking 1,700 cookies in the shape of a small person that is filled with holes. The Olivers say the holes are meant to represent bullet holes and each cookie stands for one of the 1,700 children killed by gun violence every year.

Patricia Oliver will hand-deliver the baked goods to the NRA office outside of Washington, DC on Tuesday

The Oliver's said they were inspired by a recent NRA social media post showing a picture of Santa Claus reading a Christmas list requesting Ammo. The caption says “Dear Santa, you give us ammo. We give you cookies. It’s that simple.”
