Ivanka Trump, President-elect Donald Trump’s daughter, has donated $1,000 to a project meant to honor the seven children of Gavriel and Gayle Sassoon who passed away in a tragic house fire in Brooklyn last year, Eddie Small reports for DNAinfo.
The GoFundMe page for what has been dubbed “The Sassoon 7 Project” aims to raise $1 million to build a community facility at 3371 Bedford Ave., where a devastating fire in March 2015 caused by a hot plate killed the seven children between the ages of 5 and 16.
The facility would include a library and a men’s and women’s learning center, and it has so far raised $126,734 of its $1 million goal.
The project’s GoFundMe page was launched on Nov. 24 on behalf of Gayle Sassoon, and Trump made her donation to the cause on Friday.
Although contributors to GoFundMe campaigns have the option to make their donations anonymously, Trump made hers under her full name, and GoFundMe confirmed that the donation did indeed come from the president-elect’s daughter, as per DNAinfo.
