Traditional fundraising platforms across the globe have raised millions and millions of funds to help a cause. This could go both ways depending on the cause. Take the case in Canada. The ongoing truckers’ protests against the mandatory vaccination measures have aggravated since January this year.

The demonstration quickly grew, with thousands of people clogging traffic and obstructing the US-Canada border. The Canadian government had blocked funds (used to fuel their motives) from reaching the protestors through a traditional fundraising platform.

On 10 February, the Ontario government froze all donations made to the trucker convoy through GiveSendGo, a fundraising platform. In fact, dealing using the aforementioned platform was an offense, according to Andrew Lawton, a famed TV personality.
