This story has been updated to reflect the updated donation total as of 12:30am ET on Thursday, December 20th. Donations appear to be continuing to roll in at an accelerating pace. 

Brian Kolfage, a triple-amputee Air Force veteran who hails from Florida, has decided to set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for the U.S.-Mexico border wall.

In just three days, Kolfage has raised more than $2,000,000. Kolfage created the campaign on Sunday, which is titled, “We the People Will Fund the Wall.”

The crowdfunding goal is $1 billion to help fund President Donald Trump’s U.S.-Mexico border wall — one of the president’s original campaign tent poles and a point of contention on both sides of the aisle.

Kolfage page states that “[i]t’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling.”

“If the 63 million people who voted for Trump each pledge $80, we can build the wall,” Kolfage continues. “That equates to roughly $5 billion, even if we get half, that’s half the wall. We can do this.”

Kolfage adds that as a triple-amputee veteran with a family of his own, he says it’s important to “ensure future generations have everything [U.S. citizens] have today.”

“As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today,” he writes. “Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society.”

Kolfage says that Democrats will stall the U.S-Mexico border wall “by every means possible” and will “play political games to ensure President Trump doesn’t get his victory.

“They’d rather see President Trump fail than see America succeed,” he adds, calling the wall “our duty as citizens,” and compares it to the World War II generation raising war bonds.

“[If] we can fund a large portion of this wall, it will jumpstart things and will be less money Trump has to secure from our politicians.”

The crowdfunding page has been shared on Facebook over 500,000 times at the time of this writing, and has been receiving regular donations by the minute.

At the time of this writing, the highest single donation has been $5,000.

        A better way to show how serious Americans are, Is to vote them out of office for failure to do they’re sworn duty. If people did this or recalled them They would learn pretty quick and so would future politicians running for office to uphold the Constitution m. People have become so apathetic and need to stand up for they’re rights as Citizens to hold Politicians accountable for they’re inaction.

          you’re correct but… do you really think the Democrats will vote against their party to help POTUS Trump get the wall? it would never happen, the days of “Just vote them out” are over I think…these people (both parties) are only worried about one upping the other. I’m in CT and the democrats have all but Bankrupted out state, made all types of crazy regulations on gun ownership and basically spit on the US Constitution for the last 8 or so years, so we get a chance this past midterms to “vote them out” and what did the dems do? they voted in ALL Dems because they “wanted to send a message to Trump” … so they continue to f*** up the state because they’re angry at the POTUS… Real grown up huh?

I’m all for us chipping in for the wall. Stick to your guns president Trump we’re with you build that wall. Your supporters will pay to keep us safe.

      That is true. However, Donald Trump claims to be worth more than TEN BILLION, so he could build it himself. Now, I wonder why he doesn’t just do that? What could his motive be in not paying at least FIVE BILLION out of his own cash? (I wonder.)

      By the way, Mexico isn’t going to pay a dime for the wall.

        Why should he? It’s not his responsibility to pay for everything out of his own pocket. It’s the freaking liberal Democrats that support illegals (criminals) over Americans, while they live in their posh mansions behind Gates and security while normal middle class people have to desk with all this crap.

        The first thing is it does not work that way. Private money can not build this on public land. The 2nd thing is Mexico can in directly pay for it. Taxing money grams sent to relatives. Tariffs. Along with any other decreases on helping them. Number 3 get a grip.

        December 20, 2018 at 2:49 pm

        Mexico will pay for the wall indirectly or otherwise. The art of the deal. Trump should not contribute any personal money into the wall project. He’s already put his life on hold and is donating his salary paycheck to pull our backsides out of the fire.
        Why, exactly, do you expect someone to provide your security without your participation,? That attitude is exactly why we are in this mess to begin with.
        We are not owed a living but we are owed wise decisions from our elected leaders. We have th as t in President Trump.

    • Beverly Thorpe

      December 20, 2018 at 2:48 pm

      Trump and Homeland security have marked specific vulnerable areas that need the wall, which is actually a mostly slatted fence per the border patrol requests. Please KEEP IN MIND that this money should not be sent to the Dept. of Treasury without discussing rules with Sec’y Mnuchen and his panel of government lawyers for this incoming money. If just deposited into the treasury, it will not go directly for the wall. It will be used in departments Congress chooses arbitrarily, so we need to be correct on the laws when turning this money over to DC. By the way, the 5 billion or even the lesser figure is NOT for the fencing ONLY, as Dems try to imply. It also provides more Border Patrol and ICE employees, cameras, drones, vehicles, newest electronics to aid the border patrol people’s jobs.

    An idea I’d never thought of; but one worth thinking about. We need to work on the wall; it’s only part of national security, but I think anyone who thinks we can do national security without a wall is deluding. We’re a sovereign nation and I’ve not heard anyone give me a good reason why they don’t want or how they wouldn’t benefit from a wall. I don’t buy the ‘who will pick our lettuce’ argument. Less than 5% migrant workers work in the field.

    The other thing I don’t agree with is that we’re a nation of immigrants. Yes, we are. LEGAL. You didn’t leave Ellis Island until you were vetted and in some instances became a citizen. Becoming a citizen meant something. It was a dream. Now, it is a different address. DONATE!

AN entire tribe of thieves and cheats. trump has never used his own money for anything; doesn’t pay bills and bankrupts businesses after paying himself form investor’s money.

      Since you already have proven to be a dick, you can stand the fact that people don’t share your opinion, hence resorting in writing down stupid remarks. You are showing up your lack of education,lack of reality in regards to illegality, crime and safety for true Americans.
      You are short of intelligent thinking and come up with stupid argument. Americans want to fund this wall and I’ll be damned if not common Democrats even want it up, but in stead you choose to deny true Americans to decide who is allowed and who is not allowed to come in.
      You also fail to understand that the Pelosi/Schumer clique don’t give a rat’s ass if aliens are allowed in or not, as long as they can obstruct this President, but at least they are using their intelligence to do so, there where you are totally OK that your opinion is or will be disregarded.

      Yes, I have read the media’s rabid articles claiming the Trump Foundation has acted illegally. I also know that that investigation and prosecution is part of the ongoing persecution of President Trump by the NY AG and his incoming successor has vowed to do even more. Accusations in the media of wrongdoing are a daily occurrence against this president. I find it ironic that the exact opposite was and continues to be the case about Obama’s illegal and unconstitutional activities along with the landslide of evidence against Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. But no one is writing or reporting about that.

    THERE IS MORE THAN JUST HIS PAGE RAISING MONEY FOR THE WALL. I STARTED ONE MYSELF AND THERE IS ONE OTHER THAT I KNOW OF, I ASKED BRIAN IF WE COULD POOL ALL THE MONEY BUT HE SAID HE DOESNT WANT TO. NOT SURE WHY BUT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA. HERE ARE THE LINKS FOR THE OTHER TWO.

    THIS ONE IS MINE…..https://www.gofundme.com/n96fuy-help-us-build-our-wall

    HERE IS THE OTHER ONE…..https://www.fundthewall.com/?fbclid=IwAR0a4J6ryDOiA1MmTz_YRpXYBLdpZxvBQ_MR-BGcfuhmuEMrWsqmKAaAV5g

    It sounds to me like Brian thinks he is a hero for starting a Go Fund Me for the wall and that nobody else should get credit for doing the same thing. This is a little upsetting for other Americans to be discredited for wanting to protect our family security and the border.

    HERE IS WHAT I WROTE TO BRIAN AND HIS RESPONCE.

    Brian, there are actually a lot of go fud me pages to help build the wall. You need to get with all of them and get all the money put together. I have my own page, I just stared a few days ago here is the link. I would love to put my money with yours. How are you getting the money to who it needs to go to for the wall? https://www.gofundme.com/n96fuy-help-us-build-our-wall…$410.00 raised so far.

    Here is another one that has raised $140,513
    https://www.fundthewall.com/?fbclid=IwAR0a4J6ryDOiA1MmTz_YRpXYBLdpZxvBQ_MR-BGcfuhmuEMrWsqmKAaAV5g
    Please get in touch with me on this.

    Brandy,We are going to roll solo with this at the moment, trying to get don jr to endorse us as I’ve spoke wit him in past. We realize many others are doing this, we just feel we have the connections to make a very large impact ourselves to get this rolling.
    Brian,Then it would be nice if you could help us get to the right contacts like Don jr. to send this money to the right place?

      It is not Trump that is not delivering, He has already accomplished so much, it is the Congress and federal liberal activist judges that are holding Trump back from delivering. He has been fighting and every single action he has done has been met with opposition the “resistance” movement sworn by Democrats to resist any and all actions from Trump no matter whether it be good or not for America matters not to them.

There will obviously be some people smart enough to create a legal way to use the monies! THANK YOU Brian Kolfege for your service to our country and the courage to get the ball rolling for all of your fellow Americans who support protecting our nation! Roll out the red carpet for those who truly desire to live in this country and to become US citizens LEGALLY, but, it is a privilege to live here. NOT a right!

    Count me in also, great idea. Maybe pay extra to have our name engraved on it somewhere. Trump has done more for this country than any President I can remember and I am 75 years old. He is donating his salary to Vets and other great projects, not taking a dime in salary. His foundation unlike Clinton Foundation has donated millions upon millions to worthy causes, fake news makes it sound like he is using it for personal pleasure. Drain the swamp and stop trashing Trump and watch the good he can bring to America.

      Well said ! Since we have been sold out by BOTH political parties on the immigration issue, it’s up to Americans to save themselves.
      Trump is our last chance to save what’s left of America, he is trying to do this virtually alone.
      NO ONE is standing up for the citizens of this country. The Republican Party disgusts me ! House, Senate, everything they needed, the voters gave them. In 2 years they did almost nothing of merit.
      The Democrat Party is even worse, they are dangerous. There is NO legitimate reason for not protecting our nation so citizens must do it themselves.
