Christian Company Steps Up For ‘Freedom Convoy’ After Big Tech Cuts Off Funds

The war between Good vs. Evil wages on — and it appears the side of Good is gaining major momentum.

Over the weekend, the Silicon Valley crowdfunding company GoFundMe announced that it would refund all the money donated to the Freedom Convoy of truckers. Donors’ contributions would be returned automatically.

GoFundMe happily accepted fundraising dollars to fund far-left domestic terrorists as they burned down major cities across the world. Money raised using GoFundMe was allocated toward bail funds for domestic terrorists and directly supported Antifa’s efforts to obtain weaponry and other means to combat police. But protesting truckers and farmers are simply beyond the pale for the Big Tech giant.

However, Christian crowdfunding site GiveSendGo opened a campaign for the Freedom Convoy truckers demonstrating in Ottawa, Canada, raising more than $2 million by Saturday night.

The new campaign opened after GoFundMe canceled the truckers’ first fundraiser, which had raised around $10 million.

By 9 a.m. Sunday morning, the GiveSendGo campaign had netted $2.4 million of the new $16 million goal.

“We’ve decided to team up with an organization called GiveSendGo, which is going to enable us to get donations into the hands of truckers much much quicker,” said Tamara Lich, an organizer with Freedom Convoy 2022.

The GiveSendGo campaign page states that donations will be used to help truckers with costs of fuel, food, and lodging.

“We plan on being here for the long haul — as long as it takes to ensure that your rights and freedoms are restored,” Lich said. “From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you very much.”

The inundation of donations on GiveSendGo is reportedly causing some server difficulties for the crowdfunding site.

Rumble tweeted Saturday that it is willing to offer support, to which GiveSendGo replied that it had sent a direct message.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, along with state attorneys general from West Virginia and Louisiana, promised Saturday to investigate GoFundMe’s removal of the Freedom Convoy’s page.

Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz also raised concerns, sending a letter to the FTC questioning GoFundMe’s fraudulent practices.

The thousands of truckers are heading into their tenth day in Canada’s capital protesting against COVID mandates.
