PayPal Holdings Inc said on Monday it has blocked the Christian crowdfunding site
GiveSendGo after it helped raise funds for people who attended last week’s event in
Washington when supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol.
The digital payments processor also confirmed to Reuters that it closed an account held by Ali
Alexander, one of the organizers of the gathering. The news was reported earlier by Bloomberg,
which cited an unnamed source.
Trump, who has without evidence challenged the validity of Biden’s election
win, initially praised his supporters but later condemned the violence.
Bloomberg reported last week that PayPal had closed an account held by Joy
In Liberty, one of the groups that paid for supporters of Trump to travel to
Washington where mobs stormed the Capitol.
Representatives of GiveSendGo, which describes itself as “A place to fund
hope. A place to work together with the body of Christ around the world to
make a difference,” could not be reached immediately for comment.
