    Another hard-hitting Howie blog found! Not a lot of posts, but this guy does financial deep-dives into some of the more questionable "charities" within the Stern universe including Bianca's Furry Friends and Robin's defunct 15 Foundation:

    Sample:

    "Although the Sterns spent many millions of dollars to acquire and reportedly remodel their Palm Beach estate, Beth and Howard are looking to the public to fund the cost of Bianca's Furry Friends, and Beth has been active in making appearances to mention the need for peasants to open their wallets to help fund this project.

    Here's a look at some of the fundraising highlights since the lofty dream of Bianca's Furry Friends was initially announced:

    1. Kitty Tea Party - July 2013. In July 2013, there was a kitty tea party to get the ball rolling with donations for Bianca's Furry Friends. No mention has been made of how much money was raised although it provided Beth with an opportunity to pose for some photos and post a picture of herself online.

    2. NSAL Gala 2013. The NSAL has an annual gala, and in 2013, proceeds from the gala were to benefit Bianca's Furry Friends.

    Shortly after the 2013 gala, the NSAL claimed $1 million had been raised to date to fund Bianca's Furry Friends, with $610,000 of the proceeds from the 2013 gala:

    "Nearly $1 million had been raised to date for Bianca's furry Friends, with $610,000 raised from the Gala alone - a fact that moved Beth Stern to tears as she thanked everyone who had come out to support the project. "Bianca’s Furry Friends is going to be an amazing addition to Animal League America’s campus," she said. "It will serve as a role model for other humane organizations, and that is a beautiful legacy for our precious Bianca.""

    However, based on the NSAL's annual report, it appears that the estimate of the amount raised from the gala was the gross amount - there were over $130,000 of direct expenses from the gala:

    NSAL is one of the lowest rated animal charities around.

    It's pretty obvious that Beth doesn't give a flying fuck about animals because if she did, she would be supporting and promoting the ASPCA or other well respected and reputable animal charity.

    As many people here say, it's nothing more than a vanity project for her.

    Geez.... what a major league bitch.

    If Beth could have a kid, there would be a no animal policy at Pelican Manor.

    Can we all follow Michael Rappaport's lead and refer to the charity as Beth's Furry Friends from now on? It sounds sadder / funnier that way.
