Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have continually come under fire for soliciting fans for donations to fund their “mission work” — which some believe is a thinly veiled disguise for a family vacation.
And now, they’ve offered some kind of compensation for those who are angry with the situation — they’ve added a “request a refund” option on their website’s donation page.
We are looking forward to reconnecting with everyone with the new specials on TLC—many have asked about our mission work and about the challenges of taking our family to a different country, culture and learning a new language. We appreciate your prayers. To keep up with us visit www.dillardfamily.com
As In Touch Weekly previously reported, little Israel’s parents’ work in Central America was not considered sufficient enough for them to be endorsed as “missionaries” by their own church.
Even though they have begun offering refunds for frustrated fans, it’s worth noting that their donation page is still up and running — so it would appear they are to continue moving forward with their fundraising and work in Central America.
