“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.
