Justice for Jeremiah -Are donation requests Questionable?
Posted in the Fitchburg Forum

Two Facebook group sites created for missing boy Jeremiah Oliver are requesting that donations be sent to a local (Leominster monument) company that is in the process of making a stone monumental bench seat in honor of missing boy Jeremiah Oliver. These requests are specifically asking that all donations be made out in memo directly in the name of "Justice for Jeremiah" to the local monument company that is reportedly making this monument.
There is no mention at any of these group sites what these funds are being used and/or collected for other than the making of this monument by the local monument company. In addition, there is no mention nor notice on the company's web site and/or it's Facebook pages of any effort on its part in the making of this monument and/or its collection of these donations in the name of missing boy Jeremiah Oliver.
Several questions need to be raised by the public regarding the funds being solicited by these two groups and/or any other individuals involved in the solicitation of these funding requests, such as;
-Is the company donating this monument in honor of the missing boy or trying to recoup its own costs through donations?
-Are the funds being collected going to any other cause other than the making of this monument?
-Is there a legitimate banking account and/or legal executor established in the name of the missing child account by this company for the collection and control of these funds and if said funds collected through solicitation efforts exceed the actual cost of making the monument then what will these excess amount of funds be used for?
Example A: Possible Donations
(1000) donations @$10.00 =$10,000.00
Monument Cost (estimate)=$500.00
Excess funds in account =$9,500.00
Example B: Possible Donations
(1000) donations @$25.00 =$25,000.00
Monument Cost (estimate)=$500.00
Excess funds in account =$24,500.00
In addition, these same site Administrators have also posted several weeks back that a legitimate trust fund would be legally established for the missing boys siblings and that notification of said trust fund information would be soon forthcoming where those donations could be made too. As of yet, there are no posting(s) and/or notifications on either site regarding the progress taking place in the creation or set up of this particular trust fund that apparently was being established for the missing boys siblings.
The actual post on these sites states the following in a picture while also providing a sample picture of what the monument will look like when completed-
"A bench is being made for Jeremiah , we are asking the community and anyone willing to donate money to please make checks, or money orders out to Leominster Monument Company their address is 339 Electric Ave, Lunenburg, Ma. 01462 please on a note or on the memo of the check write Justice for Jeremiah"
The sites promoting/soliciting donations to the local monument company are as follows;
Jeremiah Olivers community voice
Jeremiah Oliver Seekers
The local monument company web sites that will control these donated funds are as follows;
The group moderator(s) on the "Jeremiah's community voice" site is also making the following request:
"We are requesting for everyone to please share this link with as many friends as possible. And please note that donations can only be sent to the Leominster Monument company for "Justice for Jeremiah". Checks payable to Leominster Monument Company. Thank You."

Stamos, what is your problem? Why are you such a grumpy person? There are plans in place for the use of the excess funding if there is any collected.
If you have a claim of a fraud being committed then say so and stop implying of such a scenario through your innuendo.
We are also in the process of creating a trust fund. We had hoped for it already to have been in place but their are legal matters that need to be clarified first.
We have coordinated efforts that have already been in process. If you have any suggestions and or are able to offer assistance then we would appreciate any such assistance.
There is absolutely NO ill intentions nor trickery going on here as the family has been fully aware and approval given by the family for this venture. Everyone is in full understanding that absolutely no money is to be given to anyone in the form of cash. All receipts are kept and will be accounted for in full.
I am asking, please do not make this genuinely honest and caring filled motivation for the community's gift and symbol of awareness for Child Abuse in Jeremiahs name into a political motivated attack.
There is much more in discussion and in the process of being accomplished that is being done in the name of Jeremiah who will do not feel had made his 5th birthday. This boy has been abused over and over and disrespected and neglected over and over again as it continues through this day.
There are people within our community that know what happened to this 4 yr old boy and who are keeping in a secret which is deplorable and disrespectful to Jeremiah. It is time for these people to open their mouths so Jeremiah can receive some respect. We are doing are best to give this boy some respect.
