I had a hunch there was something "amiss" about the fundraiser awhile ago when I started seeing comments on various social media questioning the organizers...and not just about the possible gun-control links.

I don't doubt Tim's intentions....I'm sure they were/are honorable....but unfortunately there are quite a few allegedly charitable organizations who seem to prey on celebrities like Tim who have generous hearts.

The organization Scotty acts as spokesperson for is based in and works with the people of that area of Connecticut. He has been to their headquarters, and dealt with the group first-hand.

Of course, there is not absolute proof the group Tim is working with is a fraud. It does demonstrate, however, that celebrity agents should be very careful who they link their clients to....and conduct serious investigations into the organizations.

Somewhere I got the impression it involved an anti gun group.

WOW...this DOES put a different light on this benefit concert. I hope everything works out and that the proceeds actually do go to the community and the families who were affected by this tragedy. sad.gif

Unfortunately, not all groups are what they claim to be.

It is tough for celebrities wanting to do the right thing to know...

Here is a comment from a mother of one of the children killed in the tragedy.
It was sent as a text, so I can't bring it over with the link but it said:

Michele Gay:

I am the mother of Josephine Gay, one of the children lost at Sandy Hook School. My family and I thank you for withdrawing from the concert fundraiser. Like you, and in honor of our daughter and her loving spirit, we chose not to engage in divisive political issues. Though overwise branded and marketed, the benefiting organization does not represent or support us, nor does it represent the town of Sandy Hook/Newtown. To imply that it does, is to mislead the many well meaning and generous Americans who wish to support us. It is hurtful to watch this misconception continue and to see our loss and pain further capitalized upon. While I will only ever speak for my family I can assure you that many in Sandy Hook and Newtown are grateful to you for trusing your gut. God Bless, Josephine's mom.



That is quite a surprise...that you for posting!

Thanks for this. It is so sad - Scotty is one of the spoke persons for Sandy Hook. It would seem the "real" benefit would try to have Scotty entertain.
