Fargo, N.D. (WDAY TV) - Giving Hearts Day has raised over $5.4 million dollars this year, surpassing their goal of last year's $3.7 million dollars.

The 24 hour online fundraiser gathered exactly $5,477,704 that will go towards helping many charities. Ronald McDonald House is one of them.

Our own Rebecca Lebak helped out by rocking outside the building.

The volunteer efforts support families who are waiting to rock their babies currently in the hospital.

Each rocker set the goal of raising $4,000 in their two hour shift.

Jill Christopher, RMHC executive director: "We want to do something that would draw a little extra attention to our families and really one of the things, particularly in our North House here that our families are waiting to do is take their babies home from the hospital."
