Nearly a million dollars in donations have poured in to help the victims of the Christchurch massacre.
The New Zealand Council of Victim Support Groups set up a crowd-funding page just before midnight last night – less than 11 hours after the shootings at two mosques in the city.
In little more than six hours, more than $500,000 had been given to the Givealittle cause.
The web page for the cause is now thought to be overwhelmed with traffic and is intermittently crashing.
A separate appeal on LaunchGood was up to more than $460 000 this morning.
The Givealittle appeal states that it is the official Victim Support fundraising page for victims of the Canterbury shootings.
