Sacked former Wallabies fullback Israel Folau was dealt a massive blow this week when his GoFundMe page was taken down by the website for breaching their terms, despite raising over $750,000 in a matter of days.
But now a second fundraiser for the 30-year-old has drawn more donations within 24 hours than the previous campaign that was shut down on Monday morning.
With GoFundMe shutting the door on Folau, a conservative Christian group has begun a new effort. At the time of writing, the new site has raised over $1,200,000 through donations and looks primed to hit his target of $3 million in a matter of days.
“We are ensuring that the voice of quiet Australians continues to be heard, and Israel Folau continues to know that he is not alone,“ said managing director Martyn Iles.
The amount includes a $100,000 donation by the ACL itself, which is among vocal supporters of Folau.
