GoFundMe is an American for-profit crowdfunding  platform that allows people to raise money for events ranging from life events such as celebrations and graduations to challenging circumstances like accidents and illnesses.

From 2010 to the beginning of 2020, over $9 billion has been raised on  the platform, with contributions from over 120 million donors.

The company is based in Redwood City, California, with offices in San Diego and Dublin, and with operations in France, Spain, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom.

In January 2022, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that truck drivers crossing into Canada would have to be fully vaccinated.

In response, some truckers organized a convoy to Ottawa.

A project was created with the claim of raising money for fuel and food for the convoy.

On February 4, 2022, GoFundMe announced the fundraiser had been removed  from the platform for violating terms of service, specifically "violence  and other unlawful activity"

The GoFundMe had raised more than $10 million Canadian, of which $1 million, was distributed. The remaining fund will be returned to those who donated it, if they fill out a request.
