As September drew to a close, the team at the WS FU completed its initial report and distributed copies to the agencies and individuals responsible for following up on the team’s findings. Across many forums and media forms, much has been said about this report and the people behind it. Our motives have been questioned, our members criticized and our efforts mocked. We feel that it is time to set the record straight and move forward. To begin, the team’s report is a comprehensive and factual document, and is nearly 90 pages long. Every area of concern we addressed was presented with verifiable documentation attached. We provided detailed information and research verification to those in the law enforcement and professional regulation arenas that will be responsible for taking the next step. We have faith and trust in the investigative process, and in those entrusted with the responsibility of finding and sharing the truth. We applaud you, and we thank you. The word TRUST is very important; because trust is what many believe has been betrayed in this case. The trust of a generous public that wanted to help, the trust of a beautiful child in those that should have protected her and, of course, the trust account that was the group’s initial focus. The reality is that there is a much larger picture that needs to be explored. It’s time to focus on changes that must be made in how “charities” operate and solicit funds. We need to hold them accountable for their actions and inactions, and demand transparency and fiduciary responsibility from those who seek our support. A generous and giving public needs to be reassured that their contributions are used for their intended purpose. This case serves as a wake-up call to all of us that comprehensive charitable entity oversight is needed. Whether that is best accomplished on a state-by-state or national basis remains to be seen. The reality is that we cannot afford for legitimate, worthy organizations to suffer because the public feels duped by a less than honorable entity. We owe that much to those who give so freely of their time and talent to help those in need. We owe it to Caylee, so that her beautiful voice will always be heard. Help us change the future. You can make a difference. Check your state’s laws about charitable contributions; investigate where your hard-earned money is going when you donate. Work to change what’s wrong and support those who do it right.
