FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A Florida man says people who contributed more than $20 million online to help build a wall along the southern U.S. border can get refunds or shift their support to a new non-profit effort.
Air Force veteran and triple amputee Brian Kolfage says on the GoFundMe page he started to raise money for President Donald Trump’s wall that the non-profitendeavour will be more successful. The message tells donors they can get a refund if they do nothing or direct their donation to the non-profit.
So far, about 339,000 people have contributed. The new non-profit is called We Build The Wall Inc. Kolfage says he hopes to raise $1 billion.
According to his website , Kolfage was severely wounded in a 2004 rocket attack at an Iraq air base.
