Muslims have raised over $200,000 for the victims of a shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh last Saturday.
The campaign was jointly run by CelebrateMercy and MPowerChange on the Muslim crowdfunding website LaunchGood.
After the initial goal of $25,000 was reached in only 6 hours, the campaign went viral and attracted media coverage from around the world.
The shooting itself was described by FBI agent Bob Jones as “the most horrific crime scene” he had seen in 22 years.
The shooter, Robert Bowers, had made a number of anti-Semitic posts on social media before the attack.
May Allah protect all those in danger and bless this initiative
