A GoFundMe page dedicated to funding a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico is quickly raking in millions of dollars from tens of thousands of donors.
From Daily Caller:
Brian Kolfage, a Purple Heart veteran and triple amputee, created a “We The People Will Fund The Wall” GoFundMe page Sunday, calling on Americans to donate whatever they can to fund a wall on the country’s southern border. The GoFundMe page since skyrocketed in popularity, surpassing $1 million in donations from more than 16,000 donors Wednesday.
The crowdfunding effort doesn’t appear to be slowing down. In fact, donations are raking in a faster rate.
As of publication of this article, Kolfage’s GoFundMe page raised over $5,423,000 from more than 80,900 donors. Many of the contributions are small in size, with numerous people donating $50 or less. Countless people have donated $1,000; three have donated $5,000; and one donation totaled $10,015.
“Like a majority of those American citizens who voted to elect President Donald J Trump, we voted for him to Make America Great Again. President Trump’s main campaign promise was to BUILD THE WALL. And as he’s followed through on just about every promise so far, this wall project needs to be completed still,” reads a description of the GoFundMe page, written by Kolfage.
“As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today,” he continues. “Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society.”
The page’s ultimate goal is to raise $1 billion.
