The massacre at a Jewish temple in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, left 11 worshippers dead. But a few hours after the attack ended, two charities launched fundraising campaigns to raise money for the victim's families. Both charities are Muslim.
These two communities have a long, complicated history, and that's the point of the fundraisers -- to show that no matter what your religion is, we should all have each other's backs. They started by trying to raise $25,000 but the total quickly rose to over $185,000. All the funds will go to cover short-term needs the victims have, like medical bills and funeral expenses.
