Crowdfunding giant GoFundMe this week shut down a campaign to raise money for Ryleigh Jones, an 8-year-old girl severely injured after being injected with Pfizer’s COVID-19 shot.
An exclusive report by Frontline News Tuesday revealed that just weeks after the injection, Ryleigh lost the ability to walk, and experienced shortness of breath and chest pain. She then came down with sudden episodes of psychotic rages and blackouts and has suffered significant memory loss.
Jennifer Jones brought her daughter Ryleigh to VCU Medical Center in Richmond, Virginia no less than 11 times over the course of two months. But not only did the hospital staff refuse to investigate any connection between the sudden changes in Ryleigh and the vaccine, they also called Child Protective Services (CPS) on Jennifer after she asked about administering ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, cheap drugs effective against COVID-19.
Jennifer set up the GoFundMe campaign in March to help pay for the extensive medical bills the Jones family has incurred for all her hospital visits and treatments. As of Tuesday, the campaign had garnered over $8,000 in donations, though still short of the campaign’s $25,000 goal.
But on Wednesday, following the report by Frontline News, GoFundMe notified Jennifer that they had shut down the campaign and refunded all donations back to the donors.
“Dear Jennifer,” the email began, “We are reaching out to you to inform you that your fundraiser has been removed because it violates our Terms of Service, which you can view here. Specifically, the content of your fundraiser falls under our “Prohibited Conduct” section.”
The company’s “Prohibited Conduct” section lists various types of prohibited campaigns, none of which applied to the campaign for Ryleigh Jones.
However, the company does note at the bottom of the list that it prohibits “any other activity that GoFundMe may deem, in its sole discretion, to be unacceptable.”
Jennifer has since set up a new campaign on the GiveSendGo platform.
This is not the first time GoFundMe has shut down a campaign for defying the COVID-19 narrative.
Frontline News reported in February that GoFundMe had shut down the fundraiser for the Canadian Freedom Convoy, a large group of activist truckers who protested against Canada’s harsh COVID-19 mandates.
GoFundMe justified freezing the C$10 million raised by citing “evidence” of “violence”, which they did not provide, inviting intense backlash – including from such donors as Elon Musk – and calls for investigation by multiple attorneys general.
The platform also suffered a ratings nosedive. The company’s rating on TrustPilot went from 4.5 stars to 3.4 stars on a 1 to 5 scale in a matter of hours. The company has received so many negative reviews that TrustPilot paused GoFundMe’s profile. GoFundMe's current Trustpilot score is 1.5 and is rated as “Bad”.
The crowdfunding giant did not immediately respond to Frontline News’ request for a statement.
