Muslim groups have raised over $500,000 for the victims of the Portland stabbings
Watch| In light of the horrific stabbings that took place in Portland, Oregon last Friday, Muslim groups have raised about a half-a-million dollars to support the families of the victims who tried to defend Muslim women from racist abuse.
The initial funds were raised to cover the funeral costs for victims Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche and Ricky John Best. Organizers explained that they plan to utilize the remaining funds for supporting Best's four children.
With three days left and over 10,000 supporters, their new goal is set at $550,000.
