The people of Las Vegas and the United States are responding in a big way to the mass shooting on Sunday night that killed dozens of people.

People have been showing up all night at the Thomas & Mack Center, bring bottles of water and other supplies.

People have also been lining up at United Blood Services to donate blood to anyone who might need it.

In addition, people have already donated more than $1 million to a GoFundMe page that has been established to help the victims. More than $1.8 million has been raised for the GoFundMe with the goal raised to $2.5 million.

Zappos is matching donations, up to $1 million, to help support victims and their families. Please visit Zappos.com/support to learn more.

E?S Fitness, a health club with eight locations in Las Vegas, set up a GoFundMe page to help the victims of the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. Additionally, E?S Fitness will match up to $10,000 in donations made. One hundred percent of the funds raised will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and their families.
