The Trucker Freedom Convoy happening in Canada right now is a massive success.
So many truckers have banded together to take a stand against the insane tyrannical COVID restrictions that so-called leaders have put on their citizens.
These restrictions have nothing to do with safety at all but a way to control the masses and the people are done with it. People from all over the world are watching the HUGE turnout in Ottawa and to show their support a GoFundMe account was set up so that they could receive donations.
As many know, GoFundMe is just another left-wing platform that does not in any way support freedom, well unless it is their particular brand of freedom. The donations poured in and of course, that has made those in power nervous so they did their best to shut it down.
The platform made the choice to REDIRECT the funds intended to the Freedom Convoy to causes that the donors never intended to support, unless they request a refund before February 19.
That sounds like theft to me, and I am sure it sounds like theft to you too.
Given how this situation has evolved, no further funds will be directly distributed to the Freedom Convoy organizers — we will work with organizers to send all remaining funds to credible and established charities chosen by the Freedom Convoy 2022 organizers and verified by GoFundMe.
All donors may submit a request for a full refund until February 19th, 2022 using this dedicated refund form.
This protest is completely peaceful and there is not one shred of violence associated with it.
The people of the world have a right to stand up and peacefully resist the two years of government restrictions on everyday activities.
People around the world pledged over $10 million in small donations to the Canadian truckers through GoFundMe.
However, since the fundraiser was held on a far-left platform which is known for shutting down fundraisers and even freezing funds destined for causes popular with conservatives, a large portion of that money (maybe even most of it, if donors aren’t alerted to the situation, and the refund deadline) is likely to be redirected to causes and charities that are vetted by GoFundMe.
The same platform that allows users to solicit donations for violent BLM-supporting felons who assaulted police officers says it took the decision because of “police reports of violence and other unlawful activity.”
GoFundMe’s decision to effectively steal the funds was welcomed by the Ottawa police and by the city’s left-wing mayor, Jim Watson.
We want to thank @gofundme for listening to our concerns as a City and a police service. The decision to withhold funding for these unlawful demonstrations is an important step and we call on all crowdfunding sites to follow.

I want to sincerely thank the team at @gofundme for listening to the plea made by the City and the Ottawa Police to no longer provide funds to the convoy organizers. 1/3

Of course, this move drew the ire of condemnation from the public since it is essentially theft.
Arizona senate candidate and former venture capitalist Blake Masters said GoFundMe executives should be arrested for “fraud and theft” if the money is sent to left-wing nonprofits.
If GoFundMe steals the truckers’ money & sends it to left-wing non-profits, the company’s executives should be arrested and tried for fraud and theft.

Thankfully, the GoFundMe executives pulled their heads out of their @ss and made the correct decision to refund the money back to the donors.
It seems that the threat of jail time for defrauding people really scared these massive cowards in their ivory towers.
Yes, it is amazing that people want to help and we need to but using left-wing platforms to do it just will not work anymore.
To donate money for causes that you support use the Christian-owned competitor GiveSendGo.
For social media, we have Truth Social about to come out.
We need to start moving away from these sites and look for ways to stop feeding the beast.
Yes, it is inconvenient, but standing up for what is right is never easy, but that is the only way things change.
