GoFundMe For Las Vegas Victims Raises $8.7 Million Dollars and Counting”

Residents of Las Vegas have also come together to help those affected by the shooting-the deadliest in modern US history-by dropping off food and supplies on the campus of the University of Nevada and donating blood.

Donations to the Las Vegas Victims' Fund are pouring in, following a mass shooting at a country music festival late Sunday that left at least 59 people dead. In less than 24 hours, Sisolak surpassed that amount, increasing his goal to $3.5 million.

"I'm Steve Sisolak, Clark County Commission Chair from Las Vegas". That account raised $7.85 million.

Checks for victims can be made out to "Las Vegas victims fund".

Authorities were also calling on the public to donate blood.

The crowd-based fundraiser had already broken $8.8 million on Wednesday afternoon. The center fundraises separately through sponsorships and donations to pay its staff and cover administrative costs.

Whether it be for a Marine Veteran who stole a truck to drive dozens of the wounded to a local hospital, or those whose lives were lost, these GoFundMe campaigns have captured the hearts of the public who want to become helpers.

Sisolak said it will be used to provide relief and financial support, according to GoFundMe. "So we want to be here to help with that", Sisolak said.

Donations can still be made to the GoFundMe account here.

The Better Business Bureau said using GoFundMe as the official donation source can actually curb potential fraud from online thieves looking to use this website for scams.

Beyond Sisolak's collections, families and friends of individual victims have also raised money through GoFundMe, Crowdrise and other crowdsourcing sites.

If you'd like to join more than 45,000 people helping the cause, you can donate here.
