I'm sorry but is anyone else smelling a rat here? I am as compassionate and understanding and human as the next person but this story is traversing the worlds media in the past 6 days or so and it just so happens that this poor girl was featured on the February JW Broadcasting? The girl and her family also just happens to be; yes, you guessed it; AUSTRALIAN? Damage control alert maybe? I don't know, I'm sure you will tell me?
Did they seek out this Australian family specifically for the emotional effect it would have? Was this all coincidence? Then we see what can only be described as an orchestrated media campaign build up and as you can understand the people of the world (worldly people) exhibit human compassion to a major extent in their offering of help, support and assistance? No surprise at all, as it is human nature to be concerned about the plight of suffering children and the rest of humanity in general.
A lady by the name of Megan Latham starts a GoFundMe campaign looking for $150,000 to help the family for flight home? https://www.gofundme.com/phelicitysneesby As of today this fund in far in excess of the the goal and stands at $218,675? As many have said on the crowd funding site comments, there are actually charities which can help this family to get home such as https://www.miracleflights.org/ and http://www.graceonwings.org/ and even Quantus has offered help I believe? On these flights only the fuel has to be paid for as the Doctors and Nurses offer their charitable assistance?
Should not the first port of call for help have been The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society first since they used this child in a propaganda piece to look good to the Australian lobby and the wider world? No matter how one may feel about the Watchtower, I am sure if they were approached they could have pulled some strings or had some sort of help for this family. I thought they had aircraft?
Found the following link from around the time Phelicity was born in which the family were trying to raise funds at that time too http://hearts-of-hope.org/families/aus/nsw/phelicity/story.html
Where is the help from the brothers? And who benefits from the excess funds raised? If it is Phelicity and family, well that is fine but it should have been stated on the fund and not just as for flights home? I wonder could the Watchtower Charity be a beneficiary? In fact, crowdfunding could be a lucrative money spinner if you get the right emotional story and social media campaign built up after a promo on JW Broadcasting? Hmmmm...
