About the indicate:
occurred at Kyoto Animation's Studio 1 building in the Fushimi ward of Kyoto, Japan, on the morning of 18 July 2019. The arson killed at least 34 people, injured an additional 35, and destroyed all materials and computers in Studio 1. It is one of the deadliest massacres in Japanese history since the end of World War II and the deadliest building fire in Japan since the Myojo 56 building fire in 2001.
The alleged perpetrator, who did not work for the studio, entered the normally locked front door and doused the area and several employees with gasoline before lighting it, setting the building on fire. He attempted to flee but was apprehended by police about 100 metres (330 ft) from the building. Witnesses stated they heard him accusing the studio of plagiarism and theft, but the police have not yet interviewed the suspect.
In addition to condolences and messages of support from world and national leaders, fans and businesses have raised over US$2.0 million to help the studio and its employees recover. As a result of the incident, some works and collaborations by the studio have been delayed, and at least one event was canceled.
Kyoto Animation was one of Japan's most acclaimed anime studios at the time of the attack, known for titles such as The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, K-On! and Clannad. It has several different locations in Kyoto: Studio 1 was located in Fushimi; Studio 2 (head office), Studio 5, and the merchandise development division are located in Uji, one train station away from Studio 1, which was mostly used by the animation directing and 3D animation staff. The building was constructed in 2007.
A few weeks prior to the attack, Kyoto Animation had received a number of death threats. Company president Hideaki Hatta said that they did not know whether the threats were related to the incident, as they were sent anonymously, but he had informed police and lawyers about them.Through: WikipediaWhat your money will be used for:

2. Will be transparent with what the donations will be used for. They will report on how as soon as it's been fully decided.
3. All third-party fundraising activites in the support of Kyoto Animation will be posted to the website as they can confirm.
