ST. LOUIS - A crowdfunding site created this week to support Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson and his family continues to rake in donations.

Created Monday on the site GoFundMe, the campaign had raised $250,000. Page organizers closed the first page and re-opened under a new one that would be tax deductible.

According to the page, it was "created to support Officer Darren Wilson of the Ferguson Police Department. We stand behind Officer Darren Wilson and his family during this trying time in their lives. All proceeds will be sent directly to Darren Wilson and his family for any financial needs they may have including legal fees."

Donors are also pouring money to Mike Brown's Memorial Fund. More than $170,000 has been raised on this site although other organizations claim to be raising money for the family as well.
