New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is using the team plane to transport high school students from Parkland, Florida. The plane will take the students from Florida to a rally in Washington, D.C. where they will stage a protest to promote gun reform.

Kraft took action after Arizona Congreswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband asked him for help, according to CBS Boston.

The students' organized protests, which are expected to take place nation-wide, come after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School which left 17 people dead.

Some students took to Twitter to thank Kraft for the gesture.
