Equality Florida has opted to distribute the money through the National Compassion Fund, which is a unit of the nonprofit National Centre for Victims of Crime. The organization promises to try it best to get the money where it is needed as fast as possible.
Within 48 hours the page had passed $1 million, making it the fastest to do so in GoFundMe’s history. It is unclear how much money was found by other, independent charity funds and whether they are going to unite with a state one. But it is not the main point. The main point is that people could not remain indifferent. They could get so much money so fast only because they stood together face to face to the grief, it was a common tragedy and people united to overcome it.
