GoFundMe campaign created for Las Vegas shooting victims

Пятница, 06 Окт, 2017

In the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in USA history, the country is banding together to help victims of the attack.

Fifty-nine innocent people have lost their lives and hospitals say 185 victims have since been released.

Cloobeck is the chairman and CEO of Diamond Resorts, a time-share company that is headquartered in Nevada, Las Vegas. In two days they raised more than nine million dollars.

The mass shooting in Las Vegas Sunday happened at a Jason Aldean concert during the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

Sisolak said he anticipates the hundreds of victims and their families will need all sorts of help in the coming days, weeks and months.

GoFundMe, the largest such crowdsourcing site, deducts a 5 percent fee from every donation and charges a 2.9 percent processing fee, plus 30 cents per donation.

The National Compassion Fund also has established a dedicated fund for the victims, CNBC reported.

"I can assure you the money will be well spent", Sisolak said while holding back tears during Wednesday's commission meeting. However, we encourage people who would like to help in their local community in the future to become Red Cross volunteers by going to redcross.org and clicking on "volunteer".

"When you look at this overall you have people that lost spouses".

These numbers are likely to continue climbing, which means the demand for blood donations is at a crucial level.
