100 Percent Fed Up reports – Yesterday, GoFundMe announced that they would not give the $10 million to the freedom-fighting Canadian truckers that was raised for them on the GoFundMe fundraising platform.
In their statement to the truckers, GoFundMe called the peaceful protest an “occupation” and claimed the protest included “acts of violence” and “other unlawful activity.”
In their public statement, GoFundMe also explained that they would not automatically refund the donors. Instead, they said they would allow the truckers to keep the $1 million they collected earlier in the week, and the remaining $9 million would be donated to groups GoFundMe considers “credible,” and “established.”
Rebel News’ Ezra Levant blamed Canada’s woke Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for GoFundMe’s decision to terminate the Truckers For Freedom haul of $9 million that was supposed to help sustain the truckers on the Alberta – US border.
GoFundMe was absolutely hammered on social media for collecting $10 million for their truckers on their donation site and then refusing to give the group the money raised for them.
Here are just a few examples of how social media is responding to the donation site that has a history of screwing conservatives.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton tweeted, “State attorney generals and relevant state officials should examine GoFundMe’s $9 million shell game that victimized the Canadian truckers and their supporters who gave money in good faith.

After receiving the stunning news, organizers for the truckers’ movement have started a new account with GiveSendGo, a Christian-based fundraising site. The organizers have set a goal of $16 million. They have already collected over $720K.
This morning, it was announced by CJ Pearson that the office of GA AG Chris Carr is reportedly planning to investigate GoFundMe’s handling of the Freedom Convoy funds.
Only moments ago, amid massive backlash, GoFundMe released another statement saying they will give automatic refunds to those who donated to the Freedom Convoy.
