Bonfils Blood Center seeks donations after Las Vegas massacre

UFC pledges $1 million to families of Las Vegas mass shooting; UFC 216 will go on as planned

The Raiders in particular have a draw on the Las Vegas community, as they agreed to move their franchise to Sin City in the coming years. By 3 p.m., it had raised more than $20,000. At the time, it was the nation's worst mass shooting, but would be surpassed by the Orlando Night Club shootings in 2016 and now the attack in Las Vegas.

At least 59 people were killed and 527 others were injured Sunday night in Las Vegas in the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.

"I mean I would hope that if something were to happen to my family and friends that more people would come out and do this", said Dillard.

When you donate, it can take two days for blood to be tested so it can safely enter the blood supply.

Pulse survivors say they plan to meet with grief counselors in Orlando to learn how to best help Las Vegas survivors, and then they plan to visit survivors face-to-face, in hospital rooms and their homes.

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.

Writer Alheli Picazo‏ also tweeted different locations in Las Vegas where people could donate blood.

Quite remarkable, the City of Las Vegas had enough blood units-a total of 200 pints to be exact-to give to the victims, according to Scott.

And get this-you can save three lives by donating one pint of blood. "Right here in South Georgia or North Florida because there are people every day who need help", said Michaels.

Journalist Yasmeen Hassan‏ said the line to donate blood was "out the door" at one United Blood Services centre in Vegas.
