£14 000 already raised by Muslims United for London.

From their page

"I was a witness to the attack, having entered Portcullis house less than 10 minutes from when it occurred. Barricaded in an office for nearly 4 hours while events unfolded outside me, I was shocked to see the injuries and loss of life outside my window. I reflected on what it means to be a born-and-bred Londoner and found myself proud of how security and medical services responded, how ordinary passers-by offered first aid, and what our Parliament means to me, an institution that is the oldest of its kind in the world and how, regardless of our critiques of government policies or political parties, remains an institution that reflects how the will of the people can be expressed with civility and dignity.

While details of the victims are still emerging, I have been in touch with networks within British Muslim communities and can assure you that we all stand with fellow Londoners during these difficult times and want to extend our support by raising funds to help with the immediate, short-term needs of the families of Keith Palmer, the other victims and their families. While no amount of money will bring back lives lost or take away from the pain the victims and their families are going through, we hope to lessen their burden in some way as citizens, Londoners, and human beings."

Please remember ISIS want to cause divisions in our country. Don't help them by hating all Muslims. Hate the perpetrators but don't blame the innocent by association.

They will not divide us

It doesn't have to be one or the other, IMO. You can be loving and kind and generous, but you can't allow that to be taken advantage of. There is a clear problem here that can't be solved through more love and generosity.
