According to the project's website ("

"If we reach our goal of $6,000, 50% of the additional funds we raise will go to one of the following advocacy groups: The New Orleans Council on Aging, The National Center On Elder Abuse, The Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving, University of California - Irvine Center of Excellence on Elder Abuse and Neglect, Weill Cornell Medical College - Project on Elder Abuse and Neglect, or The Alzheimer's Foundation of America"

What are these groups doing to prevent the kinds of abuses which individuals like ourselves have complained. I have approached at least three of these groups and concluded that their priorities do not include any of our priorities.
