A GoFundMe started by Clark County Commission Chair Steve Sisolak has moved its goal from $2 million to $10 million, thanks to the large response in donations since the campaign's kickoff on Monday (Oct. 2).
According to Sisolak, the funds raised "will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families of the horrific Las Vegas mass shooting?." As of 12:30 a.m. Wednesday (Oct. 4), the GoFundMe has raised over $8.2 million, with the total after 62,986 contributions adding up to $8,261,938.
Blood donation centers around the city have been swamped with long lines of people desperate to help those injured by the deadly shooting and in need of blood transfusions. Donors began lining up in the middle of the night, and by daybreak, lines had formed around the block at United Blood Services near the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.
