GoFundMe to refund the $20 million raised for the border wall

(CNN) — A crowdfunding effort for a wall at the southern border reached an impressive number, but it may have to give all that money back.

The GoFundMe campaign started by Brian Kolfage, a triple amputee Air Force veteranand motivational speaker, sought to provide $1 billion to fund President Donald Trump's border wall.



If all 63 million Americans who voted for President Trump donated, each would only have to pay $80 to reach the goal.
As of Friday, the campaign raised just over $20 million, but it's not all that Kolfage hoped for.

The campaign, GoFundMe said, was designed to be all or nothing.

"When the campaign was created, the campaign organizer specifically stated on the campaign page, 'If we don't reach our goal or come significantly close we will refund every single penny,'" GoFundMe told CNN. "He also stated on the campaign page, '100% of your donations will go to the Trump Wall. If for ANY reason we don't reach our goal we will refund your donation.'"

"That did not happen. This means all donors will receive a refund," GoFundMe told CNN.
However, the campaign page was still up early Saturday and accepting donations, and it's unclear when it will be taken down. GoFundMe said it is up to the campaign organizer to determine when it will be shut down.

With the now longest government shutdown in US history taking place over the funding of the border wall, Kolfage's campaign page said he "was tired of watching the U.S. government's inability to secure our southern border."

Kolfage said that he has determined that the federal government is not in a place to accept the money, so he intends on having a team to build a wall privately.

In place of the GoFundMe campaign, Kolfage set up a 501(c)(4) non-profit Florida Corporation named "We Build the Wall, Inc." and is asking donors to redirect their contributions to the organization.

But he will honor the refund, he said on the campaign page, if donors choose not to move to the new platform.

"When I created this fundraiser, I said if we did not reach our goal we will refund donors. I am honoring that commitment today. We will promptly refund your donation unless you tell us you approve our new plan for action," Kolfage said.

This shutdown could take, “months or years.” :D:D:D

Trump kaa ngumu, niko nyuma yako daddy.
Your suga daddy alifanya hivi...

1. deny hurricane maria in Puerto Rico (first time an allegedly sane person said it wasn't raining while he's wet)
2. claim that they only had 'a few deaths' and he did a "fantastic" job down there
3. after refusing to send FEMA, congress approved billions for rebuilding
4. congress refuses to give him money to build a freaking wall and he shut down the govt (this is where you do traditional dances for him)
5. he's now planning to steal that money congress gave Puerto Rico after he declares a faux 'national emergency'

I suspect you'll be tripping and falling all over the place in ululation. Pace yourself, the democrats have a legal challenge waiting for him.

I suggest you all get ready for a shutdown of the century. No for DACA protection means no. Furthermore Puerto Rico needs to take responsibility for their own failure to plan ahead instead of asking for handouts.

Yeah! right! Kanua (the mouth, or in this case the fingers), has a lot of talk but no action. When the poopoo hits the fan, you and your peremende friend suddenly forget where ktalk is..

And another thing! EDUCATE yourself! FEMA was not formed to mow your yard! It was established for the exact same disaster as Hurricane Maria. Did I hear you complaining when you guys were bailed out of snow storms, or hurricanes Katrina, Harvey, Sandy, Irma, Andrew.... brary fogothary MAGA retard!

Puerto Rico is not exactly a state in the USA. Most of its residents don’t even pay the US personal federal income tax.

Continue arguing by yourself..

On March 2, 1917, the Jones–Shafroth Act was signed, collectively making Puerto RicansUnited States citizens
Puerto Rico has been discussed as a potential 51st state of the United States. In a 2012 status referendum a majority of voters, 54%, expressed dissatisfaction with the current political relationship. ... On January 4, 2017, Puerto Rico's new representative to Congress pushed a bill that would ratify statehood by 2025.

It is not yet a state.

You made me go and check..

The Commonwealth government has its own tax laws and Puerto Ricans are also required to pay some US federal taxes, although most residents do not have to pay the federal personalincome tax. ... Residents also pay federal payroll taxes, such as Social Security and Medicare taxes.

If you and your yellow daddy don't want Puerto Rico, let them be free! Why are you quoting your efforts to make them part of you???

The US armed forces? Yes, as mamluks. Wake me when they appoint one a General officer.
