$53531 donated via the GoFundMe fundraising platform plus approximately $12000 in direct contributions = $65000. (Based on your own figures we calculated that you received around $12000 in direct contributions). Simple accounting!!! Ya know, simple math! Did you forget about those pesky direct contributions???
Breakdown of “expenses” / “receipts” given to GoFundMe :
$10,000 spent on direct “team” costs – salaries (Flights were sponsored/free)
$2,500 spent on “Indonesia mission” including the $2400 given to Scorpion Wildlife Trading!
(Which included paying spies to traipse around Bandung Zoo waiting, hoping for a “good photo op” of “something bad, a TV, some DVDs and books” also paying towards 2 rescue kittens and payment to Wanicare Foundation who accepted 2 illegally purchased Otters by Rebecca A. Rodriguez and her “expert team” from an illegal wildlife market who died shortly thereafter putting all the other animals there at risk!)
So, in summary
$65 000 – $10 000 – $2 500 – $52 500
Now, keeping it real and of course, simple – because some people forgot about those pesky direct contributions and as usual, forgot people were watching…… What was the balance of $52 500 USD squandered on? What about the actual animals named as beneficiaries who ALL received $0!!!!
Now Robriguez would have you believe all is kosher in GoFundMe land and that she has been “open and honest” with the disbursement of donations! LOL! Just because she writes out a long list naming every book and DVD she purchased, does not mean the majority of funds were spent on anything meaningful or that it cost a lot! Nice try Robriguez! 🙂 Oh and good one hiding behind “I can’t disclose how and where the money went because someone might find out”. How does that even make any sense? If you’ve got nothing to hide and you’re an “authentic animal advocate” “fighting for animals” and your actions are being scrutinized you would gladly list that you donated $20 to x and $25 to y. Good one! But just not good enough!
BTW, where is the $52 500 that’s STILL unaccounted for?
Now you didn’t spend it on trips with your bestie Alycia Barlow to Puerto Rico, Greece, Bali, Italy, Mexico and Indonesia, did you? You know, “identifying film and photo ops” 😉 Who paid for all that?
