GoFundMe account for teacher killed in Texas shooting tops $2 million

USA.- The relatives of teacher Irma García, who was killed in a shooting in Texas, United States, have opened a GoFundMe account which has collected more than two million dollars, exceeding the goal they had.

A GoFundMe account was created to help her children with funeral expenses after the teacher’s husband died of a heart attack upon learning that Irma had been killed in the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

The GoFundMe goal was $10,000. However, until this Friday, May 27, the collection has reached more than two million dollars.

It was the cousin of teacher Irma who started the collection of money to support expenses. In the publication, she said her cousin loved children and died protecting them.

“He loved the kids in his class and died trying to protect them,” it reads in GoFundMe. “Please donate whatever you can to help his family. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Garcia family for various expenses. Thank you and God bless you.”

The GoFundMe page also published about the death of his uncle, which happened due to a heart attack two days after the murder of his wife, the teacher Irma García. They were together for 25 years and had four children.
