Here is the story about a Florida man that is completely different compared to any other Florida man story out there. A Florida Air Force veteran’s GoFundMe page has raised more than $25 million for Trump’s border wall with Mexico over the past year—and the figure is rising each day with people joining from all over the USA.

Brian Kolfage, a motivational speaker, a Purple Heart recipient and triple amputee, is out there to help President Donald Trump fulfill his 2016 campaign promise to build a border wall. He started “We Build the Wall” 501c4 organization and money started pouring in as soon as they created GoFundMe page.

They already completed a stage one at El Paso Sector (Sunland Park, NM) a state-of-the-art, 18-foot-tall, steel-bollard border barrier created to stop drug-smugglers and human trafficking. The estimated price for this stage was between $6-$8 MILLION.

The team is now working on the 2nd and 3rd phase of the project but still didn’t announce the locations for those sections. It is expected that $15 MILLION will cover the cost for those sections. According to their website 35 miles are scheduled to be built.
