George Floyd’s GoFund Me Set Record With Most Donations Ever
George Floyd‘s killing is impacting the world in a way we’ve never seen before and it’s also inspiring more people than ever to donate to a cause.
Launched just a little more than a week ago, the Official George Floyd Memorial Fund has already received the highest number of individual donations for a GoFundMe page a spokesperson for the site said.
With nearly 500k donations and counting, the fundraiser’s amassed nearly $13 million. We’re told the campaign has gone global, getting donations from 125 countries.
George’s brother, Philonise, says the money will cover funeral and burial expenses, provide counseling, pay for lodging and travel for all court proceedings, and assist the family going forward as they seek justice for George. A portion of the funds will also go to George’s estate to take care of his kids and provide for their education.
