Orlando GoFundMe Campaign Raises Over $4 Million

Just hours after 50 people were shot and killed in the Orlando nightclub tragedy, a GoFundMe page was created to help raise money for the families of the victims.

The campaign has raised over $4 million since Sunday, which is a new record for the crowdfunding site. Over 90,000 people have made contributions, including major donations from GoFundMe ($100,000) and The Walt Disney Company ($1 million).

GoFundMe’s Vice President of communication and policy, Dan Pheiffer, announced the record setting numbers via Twitter.

The campaign was created by Equality Florida, the state’s largest LGBT advocacy group. They left an update on the page, writing, “We are beyond moved by the support from all corners of the world and all walks of life. … We do not know the total costs for the victims of this horrific hate crime, therefore are working to raise as much as possible and disperse the funds as fast as possible.”

You can donate to the GoFundMe page here.
