Fundraising Platform Gathers $2.9Mln for Families of Las Vegas Shooting Victims

05 Octobre 2017

But even if that blood doesn't go to victims of the Las Vegas shooting, donations are always needed, not just following a tragedy.

They are accepting blood of all types and encourage people to make appointments.

Police believe Paddock killed himself and the incident is now recognized as the deadliest shooting in U.S. History.

People are also helping victims of the tragedy and their families by giving money to the National Compassion Fund and donating blood to participating hospitals and clinics.

" What we ask for is blood - that's the main thing right now - is that if our people want to do something, and they are healthy, then please donate blood.

What happened in Las Vegas was shocking, it's tragic, and for those affected, and their families, it's devastating", McConnell said.

Stephen Paddock, 64 years old, aimed his guns from the 32 floor of the Mandalay Hotel at the crowd watching country music singers perform.

Multiple victims were being transported to hospitals after a shooting late Sunday at a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip.

"And we're booked solid for the next two weeks", said Chris Mollaun, the center's supervisor. "What's being transfused today was collected over 48 hours ago after the testing and everything was done to it". Blood bank workers say they have met donors from Arizona to California, from Mexico, Japan, Honduras, Brazil, Venezuela, and more.

"We stand at the ready to help at any time", a Bonfils spokesperson said, confirming thousands of Coloradans have signed on to give, or already donating, blood.

Less than 24 hours after Clark County Commission Chair, Steve Sisolak, launched the Las Vegas Victims' Fund on GoFundMe, the initiative has raised almost $3 million from more than 43,000 donors.

You can also donate through the American Red Cross. By 3 p.m., it had raised more than $850,000.
