"More Than $260,000 Raised To Rebuild Burnt-Down Mosque"

In just two days, thousands of people rallied to donate over $260,000 toward rebuilding a mosque that suspiciously burnt down last week. The FBI is investigating the Joplin, Missouri mosque fire, which was an apparent arson. But in the mean time, thousands of individual donors have pooled their resources on a fundraising website, exceeding the $250,000 goal 43 days before the call for funds was set to expire.
