Brian Kolfage, a military veteran triple-amputee who raised $18 million on GoFundMe to help pay for President Trump's border wall between the United States and Mexico, has updated the crowdfunding page with a message that he has a major announcement last week. I spoke with him briefly and he gave me a little bit of information that will soon be released about how he plans to pull off this major accomplishment and one of the biggest crowdfunders we've seen in a long time, if not the largest on GoFundMe in history.
Kolfage stated the following on Twitter:
"There’s nothing better than being told we can’t do something, and then coming out on top. We are funding the wall and you are about to take part in a historic moment. Next week we release our full plan."
"Make sure to go donate and sign petition! HUGE announcement next week!!"
"We are building the wall! News released next week"
From what I was told, the plan is very creative and a combination of things could be the domino that leads the rest to fall into place and fund Kolfage's GoFundMe faster than expected. Unfortunately, I cannot release further details at this point, however I can confirm that Kolfage was in D.C. this week getting things done and being very productive on his mission to fund the Trump Wall.
In the grand scheme of things, $18 million is a lot of money, but it's a drop in the water compared to the goal of $1 billion.
The fund has been donated to by 297,735 people, surpassing $18 million, and being shared nearly 1 million times on social media.
