A charity that has been set up to aid the three women freed from the recent decade-long Cleveland kidnappings has just surpassed its $480,000 mark, according to an official. Since last week's rescue, the Cleveland Courage Fund has officially received more than 5,100 donations from all 50 states as well as several foreign countries. The money will go to a trust established for survivors Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight, along with Berry's 6-year-old daughter born in the house. It's truly amazing the extent to which a little goes a long way — donate yourself at clevelandfoundation.org.
