Saving Our Daughters Charity Slams Kenya Moore, We Didn’t Receive A Dime!

Published

on

During Sunday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya Moore held a masquerade ball to raise money for a charity called, Saving Our Daughters. But now the charity is saying she didn’t donate a dime.

“On February 16, 2014, Saving Our Daughters was mentioned on the episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta as being honored with a fundraiser on its behalf,” the organization wrote in a statement. “Our charity was contacted by publicist April Love to get approval and give notice of this upcoming event. Much to our delight, we were indeed honored to be chosen. After all, one of our largest financial contributors, Mrs. NeNe Leakes who has been responsible for contributions in the thousands of dollars throughout the years, is a member of the cast.”

During the episode, Kenya made it very clear that she particularly chose that charity because it’s one of NeNe’s favorite organizations. Moore, decided to honor NeNe at the event, but allegedly failed to inform the former Glee star that the event was even happening.

The statement continues, “Days later, to our surprise Ms. Love did contact me and inform me that she had decided to terminate her company’s involvement with this event. At that point, Ms. Moore contacted me to continue moving forward with the event as purposed and planned. This call took place a day before the event was scheduled to take place. Upon seeing the event unfold on TV, it was noticed that Ms. Kenya Moore stated that she was giving this charitable event in honor of Mrs. Leakes, with Saving Our Daughters as the recipient of the proceeds from the charity event. Honorees at this point were switched without our knowledge, but again, we are appreciative of any and all support for the organization.”

Saving our Daughters goes on to reveal that not only were they not involved with the event, but that they haven’t seen a penny.

“Had we been made aware that this fundraising event was in honor of Mrs. Leakes, we certainly would have been present with the plaques and certificates of appreciation that we currently have to present to Mrs. Leakes for her outstanding efforts and support for Saving Our Daughters. This would have been the perfect opportunity for us to honor her, as well. We were not aware of this and it appears that Mrs. Leakes wasn’t aware either.”

“The light in which Saving Our Daughters was depicted was less than favorable. The organization received several calls from other supporters about our involvement in this event. They were extremely disappointed and felt that the organization was being taken advantage of. We go on record by stating that we at Saving our Daughters have never and will not ever be involved in any drive where the exact purpose is not clear, stated or held to with only approved changes. We would not ever jeopardize our continuing support from our friends by being a part of what appears to have been tainted from the start.”

“In closing, Ms. Kenya Moore stated that thousands of dollars were raised at this event. To protect the integrity of Saving Our Daughters, our records show that we did not receive any of the proceeds raised from Ms. Moore’s masquerade ball. However, we do appreciate the contribution we did receive of $500 for our annual Christmas doll drive for children with cancer.”

After the statement was released, Kenya took to Twitter to deny allegations, writing:

“I have video proof more check copies and a contract too so pls do not come for me unless I send for you. #dropsmicrphone #grabsbible2pray4u.”

NeNe Leake also chimed in via Twitter, and slammed Kenya, writing:

“You can never WIN when you play dirty because the truth ALWAYS prevails.”

    The streets are talking and they’re saying Saving Our Daughters isn’t a real charity. It’s 501c (3) status was revoked in May 2013.

    I can’t wait for the reunion. Let’s say Kenya already knew this about the charity and that is why she held it in Nene’s honor.

    Wouldn’t people make checks out directly to the charity? Kenya Moore couldn’t do anything with that money if she wanted to. And now the “statement” has been scrubbed from the website and Kenya has released receipts, credit card statements and text messages….lol….Kenya is a million steps ahead of Nene.
