ATLANTA, GA - The online payment site PayPal says it will give refunds to people who donated to a fundraising campaign for a Georgia family whose toddler died in a hot car.

PayPal spokeswoman Adriana Higuera says the company will soon be issuing refunds to customers who used PayPal to donate to the campaign at YouCaring.com, where a total of more than $22,000 was given.

Justin Ross Harris faces murder and child cruelty charges in the June 18 death of his son, 22-month-old Cooper Harris. The father told Cobb County police he left the boy in the SUV for about seven hours after forgetting to drop him off at day care.

YouCaring.com spokesman Michael Blasco said in a statement that the Harris campaign has been removed from its site.
