During a press briefing on Thursday where authorities in Florida addressed the mass shooting at another American school, officials said that GoFundMe is a safe place to donate to help victims – and donors jumped at the chance.
When that happened, the GoFundMe spiked $4,000 in about a minute. About five minutes, the total was at $58,300 and counting. At 11:30 am, the GoFundMe account was at $114,400.
The account was set up by the Broward Education Foundation, an organization that raises money for the Broward County Public Schools. The link says donations will be raised to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families of the shooting.
Perdido Key Live checked the account at 9:30pm on Thursday night and it had spiraled to just under $600,000.
