After his murder by police 5th July, protests have sparked up across Baton Rouge. In the wake of this tragedy, actor and writer, Issa Rae, has started a GoFundMe page to raise money for Alton Stirling's children. She states on the page "If you feel helpless, but want to play a small part in easing the burden of #AltonSterling's family, consider donating to this scholarship fund for his 15-year-old son (and his other kids)" Can we got a scholarship fund going 4 #AltonSterling's son/kids? Some of us feel helpless when these things happen, but that's a small step. — Issa Rae (@IssaRae) July 6, 2016 6 hours after launching the page had already hit donations of $100k and passed $300k in under 24 hours and it currently stands at $429k. Whilst no amount of money will ever replace losing a father, it's great to see people coming together and showing support in ways bigger than a hashtag.
