Brian Kolfage, a 37-year-old triple-amputee who is a Purple Heart recipient, is the man behind the GoFundMe campaign that has raised over $6 million dollars in an effort to pay for President Trump’s proposed border wall.

Kolfage, a Florida father-of-two who served in the United States Air Force, lost both legs and his right arm while serving in Iraq back in 2004.

Kolfage used the following statistic to rationalize asking for donations, stating that if every single one of the 63 million American citizens who voted for President Trump donated $80, that would equal approximately $5 billion, which would be enough to build the wall.

Additionally, he says that if they are only able to raise half of the GoFundMe’s target goal, then that means half the wall can be built.

via GoFundMe:

Like a majority of those American citizens who voted to elect President Donald J Trump, we voted for him to Make America Great Again. President Trump’s main campaign promise was to BUILD THE WALL. And as he’s followed through on just about every promise so far, this wall project needs to be completed still.

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. 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.

I have grandparents who immigrated to America legally, they did it the correct way and it’s time we uphold our laws, and get this wall BUILT!It’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling.

Democrats are going to stall this project by every means possible and play political games to ensure President Trump doesn’t get his victor. They’d rather see President Trump fail, than see America succeed. However, 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.

This won’t be easy, but it’s our duty as citizens. This needs to be shared every single day by each of you on social media. We can do it, and we can help President Trump make America safe again!

The GoFundMe campaign is titled  “We The People Will Fund The Wall”. At the time of this writing, the fundraiser has raised over $6 million of it’s $1 billion goal.

Kolfage insists that he is a supporter of legal immigration, stating that his grandparents “immigrated to America legally.”
