Fundraising efforts begin for Notre-Dame
The fire that devastated Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris has prompted fundraising appeals in the United States, as people horrified by the blaze began making commitments to restore a global landmark even before the flames are extinguished.
French President Emmanuel Macron said an international campaign would be launched to raise funds for the rebuilding of Notre-Dame Cathedral.
The French Heritage Society, an American non-profit group dedicated to preserving French architectural and cultural treasures, launched a web page to raise money for the cathedral's restoration.
"Notre-Dame is obviously an architectural marvel and most certainly a monument that should be restored," Jennifer Herlein, the executive director of the society, said.
