Saving Our Daughters has removed their lengthy statement claiming they never received money from Kenya Moore’s charity event in honor of NeNe Leakes.
At the time of this writing, the statement is no longer on their website and have removed their tweets linking back to the page.
Not only that, but Saving Our Daughters has somewhat addressed the controversy on their Facebook page. A concerned supporter asked the organization if it was true that they’re not recognized by the IRS as a legitimized charity.
The organization confirmed the loss of their 501(c)(3) status:
Hi Terri-Yes we are a non-profit and restructuring our 501 c-3 after the passing of the Founders Daughter due to brain cancer. Thank you Terri for caring for us.
Here’s an excerpt from the Saving Our Daughters website,
Shortly after undertaking the new vision, Curtis and Debbie Benjamin’s youngest daughter, Iliss (photo featured above) was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor at the age of 10. His sweet daughter lost her battle in 2011 just days after the volume, “Who Will Save the Little Girl?” was published.
Are we to believe they’ve been restructuring for three years — all while taking donations, holding fundraising events and NOT filing proper tax returns?
Our sources also revealed to lovebscott.com that Kenya is gathering additional proof, including bank receipts from other donors from the evening as well as video evidence of the checks being written. There are also witnesses from the event who saw the checks being handed over to one of two Saving Our Daughters representatives who were in attendance.
