Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson was first accused of being in on her ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers’ cancer scam and now the charity she promotes to help raise funds for cancer is being questioned.
Vicki has been promoting a charity called, Kill All Cancer, even talking about the organization on the show. Her co-stars and fans have questioned the motive of the charity that doesn’t collect funds but “serves as a ‘pass through’ for you to make donations without fear that the money is being used in nefarious ways.” All funds raised go directly to City of Hope.
According to the California Attorney General’s Registry of Charitable Trusts, Kill All Cancer was never registered with the office.
“We cannot find any record of an organization with the name Kill All Cancer registered with our office,” a spokesman exclusively told RadarOnline. “Organizations operating in California must register with the Attorney General’s Registry of Charitable Trusts within 30 days of when they receive their first assets.”
The website’s GoFundMe page, which was created on September 19, 2016, has only received $143 of their $500k goal.
“Why wouldn’t we just donate directly to the charities? What is the purpose of having a ‘middle man’ charity?” one commenter on the page asked, as another said, “Having Vile Vicki Gunvalson as a spokesperson for a ‘charity’ for cancer is the most disgusting thing that I have seen in a long time.”
The charity also does not have their 501(c)(3) status, which would make a non-profit organization exempt from federal income tax.”
As of October 11th, the Kill All Cancer website has been taken down, with a “coming soon” logo. The website claims it has applied for status as a 501(c)(3) organization.
