Just a note for those of you that like to keep up with what the Roloffs are saying on the internet; Amy Roloff is posting on her Charity Foundation's Facebook page.
She posted about her event to benefit Shriner's Children Hospital. Somewhat interesting comment considering Matt's recent comment in his recent Q&A about how he disagrees with Amy's decision to help Shriner's. Personally, I completely agree with what Amy says here.
Amy J Roloff: I met mom's, parents, and a number of kids who have benefited from Shriners. They felt like telling me their stories. Thank you to all who came to support ARCF and the event at Shriners.
Amy J Roloff: "Shriners continues to come a long way. Our past certainly can have a profound and long lasting affect on our lives today both positive and negative. Sometimes we can't get over it and think nothing has changed. Listening to these families, Mom's and Dad's I'm hoping ARCF can be a part of that change and continue to help benefit families and kids...
Shriners is doing a good thing and ARCF Dinner and Golf event on Aug. 22nd - 23rd will help with that by benefiting the net proceeds from the event to Shriners.
I hope you can can to one or both, and if not we would love for you to make a donation to help. Visit www.amyroloffcf.org Thank you to everyone for your support in helping ARCF give a little help for a BIG world."
If you're wondering why Matt is against Shriner's it stems from his own experience as a child at Shriners. One of our frequent contributors and guest reviewer Rap541 read Matt's first book "Against Tall Odds" and posted this summary of Matt's experience at Shriner's from what he wrote in the book:
Matt also indicated that something recent has angered him about Shriner's, but his website moderator censored what he said when he was asked about discussing Shriners.
Amy also posted on the discussion board portion of the ARCF -Facebook page. She wants to hear your thoughts on Healthcare if you're interested in sharing with Amy.
