There have been a lot of fundraising activities for the families of the Uvalde shooting victims. GoFundMe moved all of the legitimate ones into a central location.

Now, one of Uvalde's most famous native sons has set up his own fund.
Matthew McConaughey started a fund through his "Just Keep Livin" foundation.

"Matthew and Camila McConaughey have been on the ground in Uvalde for the last few days since the mass shooting, the loss is tragic," the organization shared in a statement. "While the spirit of the community is in pain, the unanimous support of families to families and strangers to locals is beautiful.”

"After the initial shock, the town has now begun the funerals and the grieving process, which will continue for the surviving children, families and the entire community. The community will need ongoing grief counseling and support on the long road ahead of them. Please join us to help the people of Uvalde, TX," the statement added.

100 percent of the money they raise will go to the families and the city to "support grief counseling, costs associated with burial services and other immediate and long-term needs of the community."
