Following the devastating incident in Nice France, University of Georgia student, Max Yanke took to crowdfunding platform Tilt to raise funds for the victims.
Last night, a cargo truck full of arms and grenades drove through a crowd of people in Nice who were celebrating Bastille Day. This left 84 dead while 50 are critically injured. The driver of the vehicle, who is identified as French citizen, Mohamed Lagouaiej Bouhlel, was killed by police after the attack.
Yanke shared on the campaign’s website:
“After hearing the heartbreaking news of another horrible event, we cannot sit back and do nothing. An easy way to help is to make a donation in memory of all the lives lost on Bastille Day 2016 in Nice, France. Every dollar raised will be donated to help the families of lost ones and the survivors of this tragic event. Any and all donations are welcome, every dollar counts.”
Yanke added the funds would go into an account for the victim once one is in place. He noted:
“I will be working with the Tilt team to make sure these funds go directly to the appropriate organization, and not to me.”
