The Virginia Beach-based Navy SEAL Foundation says its weekly donations surged about 60 percent on Monday after news spread that bin Laden was killed by a SEAL team.

Foundation Director of Development David Guernsey says the foundation received $6,000 in donations on Monday alone. He says there are some days during the summer the group receives no donations.

Many of the online donations from around the country came with notes attached thanking the SEALs for their service, says Guernsey.

Among other things, the foundation provides funeral assistance, morale services for SEALs and their families and scholarships for the children of the members of the elite unit.
