According to the fundraising page, Amaruccio says he also started a GoFundMe Campaign for Chris Marquez, "a famous U.S. Marine who was beaten outside a McDonalds in Washington D.C.by members of the Black Lives Matter group".

Kim Kardashian West fears her children will grow up thinking that "their lives don't matter".

No more than 24 hours later, 32-year-old Philando Castile was shot to death by a Minnesota police officer during a routine traffic stop as he sat in a vehicle with his girlfriend and her 4-year-old daughter.

After a gut-wrenching week of extrajudicial killings of black men by police in Louisiana and Minnesota, and an apparently coordinated retaliatory assault that led to the deaths of five police officers in Dallas, several fundraising initiatives have been started as a distraught nation grasps for some way to help. "I was left speechless, angry and numb".

Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Sean Bell ... and unfortunately so many more.

Kardashian is among a host of stars who have spoken out in the wake of the tragedies this week.
