All of the money will go to the Floyd family, with some going toward funeral and burial expenses as lodging and travel for court proceedings, and counseling, Floyd’s brother Philonise wrote in the campaign description.
Some donations will also go to Floyd’s estate to support his kids and their education, Philonise explained.
George Floyd, 46, was killed in Minneapolis last week when he was arrested for a non-violent crime and a white officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes and Floyd, who was unarmed, stopped breathing.
