GoFundMe Page Raises $12 Million For George Floyd In Only One Week

A GoFundMe page which was created by George Floyd’s brother has raised more than Ugx44 billion ($12 million) in a period of just one week.

After the death of George Floyd, his brother identified as Philonise Floyd created a GoFundMe page on Friday last week.

The deceased’s brother opened the page hoping to raise about $1.5 million, to help meet the family’s legal and travel expenses and help to pay for his two daughters education.

All the money collected will be given to the family which is originally from Houston and it’s managed by a legal team.

The fundraising campaign attracted the former US president Barack Obama and the contributions increased after he gave it a shout-out.

Our hearts are overwhelmed!” Philonise Floyd wrote in reaction to the 300,000 donors who have made contributions.

The police officer who killed him was fired and charged together his three colleagues who just looked on during the incident. George Floyd’s death has spiked demonstrations across several cities in US.
