Mary J. Vows to Fix Charity Woes

Singer Mary J. Blige has vowed to fix the financial shenanigans that caused her charity FFAWN to come under scrutiny earlier this week.

Mary says the minute she learned of the financial trouble her ‘Foundation for the Advancement of Women’ was experiencing, she contacted her advisors and lawyers, with the hopes of getting to the bottom of the situation.

As reported by The New York Post, FFAWN has no offices, telephone number and hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations are reportedly missing.

Mary recently spoke to E! News about the situations and said she plans to make sweeping changes.

“As founder and CEO of FFAWN, I am ultimately responsible for anything that goes wrong. The problem is that I didn’t have the right people in the right places doing the right things. This should have never been allowed to happen, but it did and now we are fixing it.”

“FFAWN is working as quickly as possible with a new team of experts that includes a philanthropic consulting firm, a non-profit law firm, and a forensic accountant,” she said. “Their goal is to get the foundation back on track, rectify outstanding issues, and make good on all of FFAWN’s obligations.”

  1. These celeb charities, as well as many of the other ventures they get into, almost never work out because they are not there to watch over things. Its not enough to just hire competent ppl. Even competent ppl have to be watched over or they will slack off, steal, ext. Like Oprah said, she signs every check. No money leaves her company without her knowing.

    If you can’t watch over a business venture you are better off not starting it. You just can’t be there in name only. You got to let the workers see you and know that you are involved in the day to day operations of the company.
