UPDATE: Border Wall GoFundMe ZOOMS BY $1 Million Raised
The GoFundMe for the wall at the Southern border of the United States has just surpassed $1 million of it $1 billion goal after being online for less than two days.
The total, which is increasing by the minute, was just over $1,025,000 at the time of publication of this article.
First reported Tuesday night by Big League Politics, the fundraiser was started by a triple amputee and war veteran:
My name is Brian Kolfage, I have a verified blue check facebook page as a public figure and I’m a triple amputee veteran,
Like a majority of Americans we elected President Donald J Trump 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.
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. 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.
I have grandparents who immigrated to America legally, they did it the correct way and it’s time we uphold our laws, and get this wall BUILT! It’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling.
“If the 63 million people who voted for Trump each pledge $80, we can build the wall.” That equates to roughly 5Billion Dollars, even if we get half, that’s half the wall. We can do this.
The fundraising page is called “We the People Will Build the Wall.” Kolfage said on the page that the maximum GoFundMe goal is $1 billion, but that he is working with the company to allow the goal to be raised to $5 billion.
More than 16,000 people have donated to the fund so far.
