In the wake of the Las Vegas massacre, politicians and professional race-baiters have been stirring the pot for their own political gain. One GoFundMe page however, is showing us the true colors of America and her citizens.
The page, which was started a mere 24 hours ago, has already reached $3.1 million including a $50,000 donation from the Oakland Raiders. Tens of thousands of Americans have donated to help foot the medical expenses of the 500+ victims injured, and the other expenses for the 50+ victims killed.
The petition was started by Steve Sisolak, the Clark County Commission Chair, in an attempt to assist the victims of this massacre. “I’m Steve Sisolak,” he says. “We are raising funds to assist the victims of the tragic Las Vegas shooting. I spent last night with Sheriff Lombardo at Clark County’s only level-one trauma center.”
“Funds will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families of the horrific Las Vegas mass shooting,” he says. The first update was posted 21 hours ago after thousands of dollars flooded in: “Thank you everyone for your donations. Please keep sharing this with your family and friends.”
Daily Mail adds:
The catastrophic evening, which saw Stephen Paddock kill 59 people and injure 527 as he shot from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay, has left hundreds of families grief-stricken, which is why Sisolak started the page.
The Oakland Raiders, who are set to relocate to Las Vegas within the next few years, released a statement Monday about the attack.
‘The Raiders family is shocked and saddened by the tragedy in Las Vegas and our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, families and first responders,’ the team said in a statement.
‘The heart of the Raider Nation goes out to Las Vegas,’ they concluded.
Sisolak also said: ‘Thank you everyone for your donations. Please keep sharing this with your family and friends.’
The page has already reached 193,000 shares on social media, but at the rate it’s going it should hit half a million by the end of the week. To be a part of the Las Vegas donations drive you can click here and do your part in supporting the victims of this tragedy.
