UPDATE Trending Gofundme campaign for the family of the Polish driver killed in Berlin over £174,000

Unlike media, especially US media, people recognized that Polish truck driver, Lukasz Urban, killed in Berlin died like a hero and treat him as such by donating money for his family.

The Gofundme campaign started by a fellow trucker from UK in two days raised £84,642 £109,000 £138,000 £174,000.

All of that is because David Duncan from Otley, England has "decided to reach out to the trucking community and beyond to help" the family of the Polish driver "in some small way".  He has setup a Gofundme campaign which is trending right now and ads about $1,000 every 15 minutes. An average donation is now £20.

A quick glance at the list of donations suggests that majority of donors are Poles, Brits and Germans and the donations range from £5 to £80.

Polish portals (namely Polki.pl) together with Mr. Urban's employer has setup a bank account (BIC: PL36102047950000900202326395 SWIFT : PKOPPLPW) on behalf of Urban family where people can sent money to.
