In the 24 hours after Harris made the announcement on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Monday morning, 38,000 donors gave $1.5 million to her campaign.

The first 12 hours alone registered $1 million in funding, and the average donation was around $37, according to The Wall Street Journal.

According to her website, she will not be accepting donations from PACs.


According to the Journal, she also raised more than $110,000 from merchandise, which includes a tote bag, a T-shirt featuring her “Kamala Harris for the people” slogan and a hat.
