Ferguson bakery vandalized during unrest receives $200,000 in donations

FERGUSON, MO (KTVI)- We have some uplifting news out of Ferguson this morning. Help is on the way for the owner of Natalie’s Cakes and More! On Monday night, those who participated in rioting damaged the shop and the equipment inside.
Natalie DuBose has invested everything into her business. The windows and other materials that were needed for upcoming Thanksgiving orders were destroyed. However, Natalie says she can’t go anywhere and plans to remain in Ferguson.
Natalie’s Cakes and More opened its doors in June of this year and Natalie’s dream of owning her own business was fulfilled.
Since her appearance on FOX 2 News on Tuesday, November 25th, two Go Fund Me accounts have been created. In less than 24 hours, over $100,000 was donated to Ms. DuBose to help with repairs.
Actress Patricia Heaton also donated and  urged others to do the same. Natalie sent a special ‘Thank you’ tweet to her supporters after learning about the news.
If you would like to make a donation please visit:’s Cakes and More Fund or DuBose Riot Recovery.

I am willing to bet anything that the bulk of the donors were white.

I don't really CARE at ALL, but am constrained to point out the bulk of american remains WHITE, therefore statistically that should be true
