GoFundMe refunds more than $20 million of donations after campaign to pay for border wall fails

GoFundMe refunds more than $  20 million of donations after campaign to pay for border wall failsThe crowdfunding platform GoFundMe said more than $ 20 million (£15.5 million) in donations were slated to be refunded after a campaign to raise $ 1 billion for the Trump administration to build a wall on the border with Mexico fell well short of its goal. The fundraising campaign, which began last month, had gone viral as President Donald Trump’s attempt to get Congress to pay for the wall fuelled a heated political dispute and resulted in a partial shutdown of the federal government. More than 325,000 donors had pledged in the GoFundMe campaign that the organiser, a veteran from Florida named Brian Kolfage, said would have been used for Mr Trump’s border wall.
