WATCH | After a historical Jewish cemetery was desecrated by unknown vandalizers in a St. Louis, Missouri suburb, a pair of Muslim activists launched a campaign requesting $20,000 to repair the damage. What they saw from donations, far exceeded their expectations.
As Muslim Americans, they decided to show solidarity with their friends in the Jewish community and launched a campaign on LaunchGood. Originally asking for $20,000, they reached that number in a mere 3 hours. In 24 hours, they've received an excess of $80,000.
Tarek shared a heartfelt message he received from a person of Jewish faith.
Last year Linda Sarsour helped raise $100,000 for Black churches that were burned down.
