“The GoFundMe campaign that aimed to raise $1 billion for the border wall is shutting down, and the $20 million raised will be refunded to donors.
GoFundMe spokesman Bobby Whithorne told INSIDER that when the campaign was started, founder Brian Kolfage promised donors that all donations would be used to pay for a border wall between the US and Mexico if the $1 billion goal was met.”
"However, that did not happen," Whithorne said. "This means all donors will receive a refund."
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.
If you want a refund for your donation, no need to do anything. You will receive your refund a few weeks after the 90 days expires and GoFundMe will notify you once your refund has processed. If you would prefer a refund now, you can request that here: https://bit.ly/2smynWq

How do I go about making sure my money stays in exactly?
I do not know yet. I will post in the first thread about this when I find the information. No need for multiple threads, and even this one. Kind of like the OP posted to make sure that he had everyone see how liberal he is.
Looks as if the OP won a battle, but he lay and rest during the war.
It has been a pretty damn great year thus far for America. Thank you Mr. President.
I saw that on OAN a week ago. They've already built a couple of miles on private property. Because it was private property, they were able to get around the local politics and the judges couldn't interfere. They kept it under wraps for several months until they had gotten to the point where they had made some progress. Ever since they released it, they've had numerous threats of lawsuits by the left, but there's nothing they can really do. It's private land, and they'll be allowed to build it. It closes off a major gap in the border wall.
What a scam. who got the compounding % as that money sat in that go fund me.
here, loan my some money for 9 months to a year and I'll refund it If the goal amount doesn't get reached. While I pocket the interest on that 20 million that sat earning %. nice gig if you can get it.
Pretty sure any interest accrued went into the fund account too. Too bad more private people didnt use any of the money collected to errect walls on their property. Id love a 30/40 foot wall around my property...but the liberal local government wont even allow a chain link fence. All Im allowed is a foot high decorative type 'fence' that wont keep a dog out.
