LLF donations

I received an email from a representative of the Liz Logelin Foundation asking me to pass on a few notes to the readers here.

Most importantly, LLF contributers donated over $2,500 to Marc and Matthew in just a few short days. That money, along with a contribution from LLF, will be sent to Marc this week. Amazing. They thank those of you here who donated, and so do I.

Many people contacted LLF about Marc and Matthew last week and the organization wanted to move quickly to set up a more legitimate source for donors who wanted to contribute. She assures me that all money donated through LLF went to this family.

LLF is aware of the reputation MckMama has and had concerns associating with her, but they decided to put this family first and work to reach as many donors as possible with legitimate donation methods.

They do not plan to partner with MckMama in the future, and any claims of a partnership with MckMama going forward or in the past are not accurate.

For those unfamiliar with LLF, this is from the site's About page:
The Liz Logelin Foundation was established to assist families who find themselves in the heartbreaking, catastrophic situation of having lost a spouse, life-partner, and parent.  The Foundation’s goal is to financially assist these families as they deal with the loss of their loved ones, and struggle to move forward. The Foundation was established in 2009 by Matthew Logelin, who lost his wife Elizabeth in 2008.
