It's hard not to get emotional about the tragedy that happened in Canada last weekend. As many people have said, "it could happen to anyone's family." The players and coaches and the families involved have been on just about everyone's minds and the outpouring of monetary support has been incredible. As a matter of fact, it's been a near record setter.

The GoFundMe page that is in place to help raise money for the team and the families has gotten over $8 million in donations as of Wednesday morning and continues to grow.

According to CNN Money:

he campaign is the largest to date in Canada. On the platform it trails only the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund, which has raised $21,488,800 since it was created December 20; a fund for victims of the Las Vegas shooting, which raised $11.8 million; a fund for victims of the 2016 Pulse shooting in Orlando, which raised $7.8 million; and the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Victims' Fund.
