Two GoFundMe campaigns have been set up by prominent local LGBT organizations in the past several hours and funds are pouring in to both.

Civil rights organization Equality Florida set up a GoFundMe several hours ago to support "victims and families affected by the horrific shooting at Orlando's Pulse Nightclub." The campaign, which has a $500,000 goal, is already well over halfway there. In six hours, this GoFundMe has already raised $368,099. You can visit the page and donate here. 



The Center Orlando has also started a GoFundMe in conjunction with Zebra Coalition, MBA, Hope and Health, Two Spirit Coalition and Rollins. This campaign, which has a $250,000 goal, has already raised $97,565. You can visit that page and donate here
