AURORA, Colo. -- Hope can be hard to come by. But even after all Katie and Caleb Medley have been through, it's a gift they're offering to Las Vegas.

"That's our goal. To bring them a little hope and let them know we are there for them," Katie Medley said.

Caleb Medley was injured at the theater shooting in Aurora. Katie Medley escaped.

When they saw what happened in Las Vegas, they knew they had to do something.

"We just want them to know that we're with them. We might not know exactly what they’re going through but we can empathize through a similar situation," Katie Medley said.

The families of the Aurora shooting will be sending a banner filled with messages from people in Colorado.

They have also started Project Hope Baskets. They are asking people to donate items such as lip balm, protein bars and notes of encouragement that will be put in baskets.

Those baskets will then be available to first repsonders and victims' families in Las Vegas.

"You know, it just feels like it close to home for us," Katie Medley said.

Caleb Medley said it's to "let them know that they have support."

The group hopes to deliver the Project Hope Baskets to Las Vegas later this month.
