WF woman raises hundreds for Vegas shooting victims


WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - A Wichita Falls woman's effort to raise money for the Las Vegas shooting victims is paying off.

Last month we told you about Poppy Ayivorh, who lived in Vegas for about 17 years, a place she still feels strongly connected to and desperate to help.

Ayivorh decided to turn her passion into compassion by making blankets to sell and donating 100-percent of the proceeds to those impacted by this tragedy.

She said after more than a month of hard work, she was finally able to make a donation to the National Compassion Fund, which gives the money directly to the victims.

The total amount she raised by selling blankets: $550!
