A social media effort has propelled a campaign toward an ambitious goal to rebuild three historically black churches in Louisiana that suffered devastating fires. The Seventh District Baptist Association set up a GoFundMe campaign to raise $1.8 million for the three churches. A viral tweet by journalist Yashar Ali inspired many to contribute, with the goal achieved in less than 36 hours.
