Locals donate blood after hearing of Vegas tragedy

Some 131,000 Filipinos are in Las Vegas.

Fifty-nine people were killed and another 527 injured in what has become the worst mass shooting in USA history.

Funds will be used to help provide "relief and financial support to victims and families of the shooting", wrote Steve Sisolak, who is also a candidate for governor of Nevada.

Less than 24 hours after Clark County Commission Chair, Steve Sisolak, launched the Las Vegas Victims' Fund on GoFundMe, the initiative has raised almost $3 million from more than 43,000 donors.

The account was created with a goal of $3.5 million, and as of Tuesday morning more than $3.1 million had been donated. Victims needed surgeries or treatment for traumatic injuries may need blood transfusions, Bloodworks Northwest said. "I spent last night with Sheriff Lombardo at Clark County's only level-one trauma center", the page said.

The Raiders are scheduled to move to Las Vegas by the 2020 National Football League season, although the move is dependent on when construction finishes on their Las Vegas stadium.

Long lines of people in Las Vegas were giving blood Monday, but Las Vegas isn't the only place people can donate blood for the hundreds of victims.

Las Vegas residents have rushed to the aid of the 527 people who were injured when gunman Stephen Paddock rained bullets down on concertgoers from his hotel window, killing at least 59 people.

One of the clearest immediate needs was for blood donations and the Las Vegas Police put out a call for help.

Upon their arrival, the Raiders will become the second major professional sports franchise to move into the city, with the Vegas Golden Knights set to open the 2017-18 National Hockey League regular season in the city later this week.
