Trayvon Martin's mother taking eight-month break from work

Co-workers donated vacation time to Sybrina Fulton

MIAMI, Fla. - The mother of Trayvon Martin will not have to go back to work for the next eight months, thanks to her co-workers.

Fellow employees at the Miami-Dade Housing Authority donated the vacation time to Sybrina Fulton.

The Martin Family says it's raised almost $100,000 to launch a criminal justice advocacy foundation.

George Zimmerman, the man accused of murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford back in February, has raised more than $200,000.

His attorney says that money is being used for bond, paying debts, and protecting Zimmerman while he's out of jail.
