More than €500,000 has been raised to help victims and responders to Thursday’s stabbing in Parnell Square, reports Breaking News.
Several GoFundMe pages have been set up to help victims of the attack.
GoFundMe said it is monitoring all fundraisers held in the wake of Thursday’s stabbing and subsequent unrest. “Our Trust and Safety team is tracking the incident, with all funds on hold until they can get directly to the beneficiary,” a statement said, reports Breaking News.
“This means that kind-hearted strangers can raise money for people they want to help, and donors can give to fundraisers with total confidence,” reports Breaking News.
It said every donation is backed by GoFundMe’s “Giving Guarantee,” which protects donors and guarantees a full refund of donations if something goes wrong.
A post on the GoFundMe page said: “Riots broke out in Dublin on Thursday November 23rd in the wake of a stabbing attack outside a school that injured three children and an adult. The GoFundMe community is coming together and fundraising to help those hurt in the attack – and a hero bystander who intervened,” reports Breaking News.
