WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Donations have been pouring in for a new charity honoring the late Beau Biden's efforts to protect children from sexual predators.

The News Journal of Wilmington (http://delonline.us/1EZy3ZY ) reports the Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children received more than 600 contributions totaling about $125,000 in its first two days since being announced.

Biden was the son of Vice President Joe Biden and served as Delaware's attorney general from 2007 through January. He died last Saturday at 46 after a nearly two-year battle with brain cancer.

Fred Sears, who runs the Delaware Community Foundation, says the outpouring shows the popularity Beau Biden and his father have in Delaware and beyond.
