The donations to the Freedom Convoy 2022 GoFundMe efforts has topped $10 million.
It becomes the eighth highest GoFundMe fundraiser ever.
Less than two weeks ago the fundraiser hit $1 million, then $3 million 10 days ago.
Donations go toward reimbursing drivers for the cost of fuel, food and lodgings.
With more than 123,700 donations, the top donation is currently $30,000.
Several media outlets earlier reported the GoFundMe had been frozen, but organizers called the rumors “hysterical” false information.
GoFundMe has been “extremely helpful” to the convoy organizers by being in direct contact, making sure all procedures are properly followed, said Tamara Lich, who started the fundraiser.
The large sum of money has other parties wanting a portion of the funds.
