*The GoFundMe fundraiser for Jacob Blake, the Black man shot by Kenosha police Sunday, Aug. 23, is doing very well. So well in fact that it has raised over $1.5 million since it was created just days ago.

As the world saw via cellphone video, 29-year-old Blake was shot while walking away from police and getting into an SUV. One officer is seen holding Blake’s shirt, and then seven gunshots can be heard.

Blake is recovering at Froedtert Hospital. One of his attorneys said a bullet damaged Blake’s spine, he has several holes in his stomach, and multiple injuries to the rest of his body.

The “Justice for Jacob Blake” campaign was launched following the shooting. By Wednesday morning, Aug. 26, it has raised more than $1.4 million, according to reports.
