    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 veteran and 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.

    What a great effort by veteran Brian Kolfage and the Americans who have donated with their dollars to support building the border wall. I hope it will continue in some way and receive even more large donations from wealthy and patriotic Americans who are not sold out to liberal and globalist ideology.

    Thank you to Brian and his family and to all of those who have and who still continue to give. The media and GoFundMe have reportedly tried to thwart the efforts of Brian's Build the Border Wall campaign.

    UPDATE: JANUARY 11, 2019

    WE ARE BUILDING THE WALL! You can still donate right now on this Gofundme!! The media is falsely reporting all money is being refunded and it’s over. They are WRONG. WE ARE BUILDING THE WALL and you can STILL donate or opt in if you donated before January 11th TO SUPPORT the plan.

    IF YOU WANT TO SUPPORT & BUILD THE BORDER WALL OPT-IN CLICK HERE!!!

    Eight days before Christmas I started this GoFundMe campaign because I was tired of watching the U.S. government’s inability to secure our southern border. Like most Americans, I see the porous southern border as a national security threat and I refuse to allow our broken political system to leave my family and my country vulnerable to attack.

    The plan of action was simple and straightforward to raise money to construct a wall on our southern border. We have raised over $20 Million from 325,000 plus donors and we are only just getting started! I have been literally overwhelmed and inspired by the outpouring of support, calls, and emails from American citizens who support our efforts to Build the Wall. I got some hate as well but that was easy to ignore with all the positive feedback I was getting. I immediately sought out and consulted with some of our country's leading professionals in law, politics, national security, construction, and finance. This team has spent countless hours over the holidays reviewing all issues pertaining to the construction of a southern border wall. Unanimously, we have all come to the conclusion that:

    -The federal government won’t be able to accept our donations anytime soon.

    -We are better equipped than our own government to use the donated funds to build an actual wall on the southern border.

    -Our highly experienced team is highly confident that we can complete significant segments of the wall in less time, and for far less money, than the federal government, while meeting or exceeding all required regulatory, engineering, and environmental specifications.

    -Our team strongly believes that we can complete our segments of the wall for less than half of the government’s estimated costs on a per mile basis.

    IF YOU WANT TO SUPPORT & BUILDTHE BORDER WALL OPT-IN CLICK HERE!!!

    To show the government how “We the People” can get this done, we have formed a Section 501(c)(4) non-profit Florida Corporation named “We Build the Wall, Inc.” to receive the GoFundMe contributions. Our website can be found at www.webuildthewall.us.

    The following individuals serve on the on the advisory board, and construction, finance, and or audit committees, operations, administration, PR, Media and ongoing fundraising:

    www.webuildthewall.us/team

    Brigadier General Dr. Robert S. Spalding III

    Industrialist John Daniel Moran, Jr.

    Ex-Navy SEAL and businessman Erik Prince,

    Former Secretary of State of Kansas Kris Kobach,

    Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza

    Law enforcement and immigration expert Sheriff David Clarke

    Fox news contributor and border security expert Sara A. Carter

    Former Colorado Congressman and presidential candidate Tom Tancredo

    Angel Dad Steve Ronnebeck

    Media consultant and journalist Jennifer Lawrence

    and many others

    IF YOU WANT TO SUPPORT & BUILD THE BORDER WALL OPT-IN CLICK HERE!!!

    We have made significant progress in less than a month. We have begun extensive due diligence and the commencement of feasibility studies engaging leading experts in a variety of fields necessary to construct our border wall. These professionals have provided us with critical guidance on the legal, engineering, contracting, environmental, accounting, maintenance, and real estate issues required to build a wall on the southern border.

    We are already taking action on:
    -Identifying the most densely crossed areas of the border
    -Soliciting affected landowners along the Southern border
    -Studying the most feasible solutions based on terrain, barrier styles, environmental impact and efficacy
    -Ascertaining the willingness of border landowners to provide no or low-cost easements on their property for wall construction

    If the Democrats won't provide the funding for what the American people voted for in 2016 then we the people will. When Americans see us completing real miles of beautiful wall, we know that we will raise the many billions we need to finally secure the entire border. I am 100% committed to secure our southern border and protect Americans.

    There is a lot of work ahead of us, but this has never deterred me in the past. With the help of our highly experienced team, and your support, we will make this work!

    The Articles of Incorporation and Mission Statement of We Build The Wall, Inc. make delivering on my promise to get a wall on the southern border built the clear objective and purpose of the organization.

    “Our mission is to unite private citizens that share a common belief in providing national security for our Southern Border through the construction, administration and maintenance of physical barriers inhibiting illegal entry into the United States. In interpreting the purpose of the Corporation, the Board of Directors and Members of the Advisory Board will consider the impact of a proposed structure on a selected site’s environment and construct barriers primarily designed to prevent illegal access to the United States, rather than cause catastrophic injury. We will focus on building portions of a U.S. Southern Border wall and manage the support operations required for, and the processes associated with, the design, engineering, construction, and maintenance of the wall.”

    100% of the funds raised on GoFundMe will be used in the execution of our mission and purpose. To honor the commitment, we made to our donors; all funds raised, less the processing fees and refunds, will be transferred to a special purpose account to carry out the purposes and mission of We Build the Wall, Inc. I will personally not take a penny of compensation from these donations.

    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.

    I WANT TO BUILD THE WALL!

    You MUST tell GoFundMe you still want to Build the Wall or your contribution will not be included in this historic project.

    The federal government is not in a place to accept the money. We have a government shut down over wall funding, but the same government can not accept this money for wall funding.

    OUR federal government has NO problem taking OUR money to build walls in foreign countries around the world to protect THEIR borders!

    OUR federal government GIVES Israel 8 billion a year for their wall and money to fight and protect their country. This is outrages!

    OUR federal government has NO problems taking BILLIONS of our money out of our wallets to rebuild countries around the world and give them FREE money, aid and oatmeal while our citizens are homeless living on the streets in the filth with no food. Countries that WE pay to rebuild and they just blow it right back up again. Total incompetence running this country and in charge of OUR money.

    They have no problem using our men and women to sacrifice their lives fighting in their wars either!!!

    Now they SACRIFICE our lives at the hands of illegal aliens who pour over our border by the thousands each and every day, disrupt our lives, our communities and rape and kill us while infecting us with their diseases and RUB SALT IN THE WOUND...make us pay for it!

    DECLARE THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY AND BUILD THE DAMN WALL

    DECLARE THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY AND SHUT THE DAMN BORDER DOWN TO EVERYBODY WHO HAS NO PAPERS TO COME HERE!

    DECLARE THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY TO PAY GOVERNMENT WORKERS EXCEPT THE HOUSE, SENATE AND CONGRESS UNTIL THEY DO THEIR JOBS AND PROTECT OUR COUNTRY!

    How pathetic has the swamp become that a disabled Veteran, who sacrificed his limbs, to protect OUR country has to take this upon himself to Build a Wall to protect our Nation!

    Schumer & Pelosi, you are the lowest of low, you are the bottom of the swamp and YOU reek of it every time you open your mouths!

    I posted on Brian's FB page to get with the Ranchers who have private land that want the wall. They have acres of land and it is a start! Their land...they can build it!

    Hopefully the rest of the landowners will rally together because those illegals will be funneled right through their land where they do not have the barriers!

    Make arrangements to build the steel barriers on the Ranchers land and get the project going where we have no resistance!

    Those steel slats need barbs on them so they cannot be climbed.

    Many welders and the people with the equipment and others will volunteer to help get it done!

    AMERCIAN'S NEED TO RALLY TOGETHER...GET DOWN THERE...USE THAT GOFUNDME MONEY AND GET THE BALL ROLLING

    SET UP RV'S WITH LOOKOUTS TO REPORT ILLEGALS TO BORDER PATROL. SET UP THE FLOOD LIGHTS, THE SIRENS AND SONIC BOOM'S TO DETER THEM AND SEND THE MESSAGE TO GO HOME!

    NO PAPERS, NO ENTRY, NO RIGHTS!

    IF PEOPLE SEE THE LIVE VIDEO OF THE BARRIER BEING BUILT...MORE MONEY WILL POUR IN!

    Beezer, I've been thinking the same all morning. Start with the ones who want it, and will even be glad to get it. At least STOP them where the people want them stopped. The illegals will just go to another spot, but let them bombard the ones who don't want it built. Increased crossings on their property might wake a few up. I doubt it will, but at least, get them off the property of the cooperating ranchers.

    Agree, get it started soon with videos and more money and enthusiasm will happen. Also, maybe, just maybe it will embarrass our own government (wishful thinking, they are past the point of embarrassment).

    Thanks for posting that on his FB.

    YEP!

    The people donating to the wall want to see it action NOW.

    With Brian's Funds and the Sherriff's for the Wall funds...it is a good start! Get it viral people!

    Do not hand the GoFundMe over to the government!

    GET WITH THE PRIVATE PROPERTY OWNERS AND GET THAT STEEL BARRIER BUILT! THEY WANT IT BUT DO NOT HAVE THE FUNDS TO BUILD IT! WE ARE PROVIDING THOSE FUNDS!

    IT IS THEIR LAND! THEY CAN DAMN WELL BUILD IT!

    USE THE CONTRACTOR'S WHO ARE ALREADY BUILDING THE DESIGN.

    IT WILL MOST LIKELY BE CHEAPER THAN IF THAT CONTRACTER WENT THROUGH THE GOVERNMENT B.S.!

    GET LIVE STREAM VIDEO SET UP AND IT WILL CREATE A DOMINO EFFECT FOR THE REST TO GET THAT BARRIER BUILT!

    DO NOT COME HERE!

    NO MORE PEOPLE...GO FIND SOME OTHER COUNTRY TO "CARAVAN" AND ILLEGALLY INVADE!

    WE WILL NOT STAND FOR IT!!!
