A wounded veteran has started crowdfunding for building the wall on GoFundMe. The Daily Caller reports:
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.
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.
The rate of raising funds is impressive, but it will likely not meet its required goals. It has however waken up the GOP Establishment in showing just how much people want a wall.
