FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man says people who contributed more than $20 million online to help build a wall along the southern U.S. border can get refunds or shift their support to a new nonprofit effort.

Air Force veteran and triple amputee Brian Kolfage says on the GoFundMe page he started to raise money for President Donald Trump's wall that the nonprofit endeavor will be more successful. The message tells donors they can get a refund if they do nothing or direct their donation to the nonprofit.

So far, about 339,000 people have contributed. The new nonprofit is called We Build The Wall Inc. Kolfage says he hopes to raise $1 billion.

According to his website , Kolfage was severely wounded in a 2004 rocket attack at an Iraq air base.
