In June 2016, a terrorist gunman entered the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and opened fire. When the shooting stopped, 49 people died and 58 others were wounded. It was the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11, and as a result, people around the world stood up to take care of families.
A GoFundMe was launched to care for the families of the victims of the attack and eventually raise $7,853,140.
