James Shaw Jr., the hero of the April 22 Waffle House shooting, has launched a campaign on a crowdfunding site to raise money for the victims of the deadly attack in a Nashville suburb.

Shaw initially wanted to raised $15,000. By April 28 the site had collected over $183,000.

“Please take the time to donate as all of the proceeds will be given to the families. Thank you again for your generosity and blessings!” according to a message from Shaw on the site, which ABC News has confirmed is authentic.

The 29-year-old AT&T worker and father of a 4-year-old girl recounted to ABC News how he hid behind a door near the Waffle House’s bathroom as he eyed the alleged suspect, Travis Reinking, who was reloading his weapon.

That’s when Shaw said he sprang into action.
