A GoFundMe for Anthony Jefferson was started shortly after news spread about his heroic deed last week — jumping on top of his three kids at a car dealership when bullets started flying — and the account has already swelled to a whopping $273,891 … and counting.
The largest donation came in from an anonymous person, who dropped $25k. Lots of other donations have been coming in anonymously as well, in increments of $2k, $1k and then into the hundreds. In all, there’s been roughly 8,000 people who’ve contributed.
That’ll certainly help Anthony — whose wife recently told us he’d been canned from two gigs of his in painting and construction … all because he was injured from the shooting and was going to be out of commission for a while. As crappy as that is, people are clearly lending a hand to hold him and his family over for the time being.”
