The President speaks to the nation following the mass shooting in Las Vegas

More than 54,000 people across the country have helped to raise millions of dollars for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting that left 59 dead and injured more than 200. 

The GoFundMe was created by Steve Sisolak, the Clark County Commission Chair from Las Vegas. Sisolak said he was at the level-one trauma center in Las Vegas with the victims and their families.

The original goal for the fund was $500,000. It was quickly surpassed. Donations will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families.

As of Tuesday afternoon, more than $3.8 million has been raised online. In addition, Sisolak explained that MGM International has pledged $3 million, and the fund also received donations of $500,000 and $100,000.  

GoFundMe also announced it would donate $150,000 to support victims and families affected by the shooting.
