Reality TV star derick dillard chose an odd time for personal fundraising. With Hurricane Harvey devastating the nation, did the "Counting On" celebrity collect money to help suffering neighbors in Texas? Nope, the unemployed husband of Jill Duggar Dillard fundraised under the auspices of a charity to pay for school and his volunteer work. This did not go over well with "19 Kids and Counting" critics or fans. They wonder where the other donations went and come to that, the hefty reality television earnings.

Derick Dillard uses charity site to collect for himself

Folks found a few fishy things about Derick and Jill fundraising for themselves. First, is Dillard's very vague description of why he needs $6,500. The "Counting On" star raves about "serving" at his Cross Church School of Ministry likes it an accredited college. But it's just Derick taking missionary classes and hoping others will pay for it. The celebrities of "19 Kids and Counting" missed the training step and went to Central America as missionaries without official church sponsorship.

Derick Dillard underwhelms in transparency

Like most of the "Counting On" cast, Jill and Derick lack college education and are unemployed. In fact, you rarely see reality TV stars in real jobs.

Kate Gosselin, the "Teen Mom" cast, Mama June: none of them work. It irritates people to see the "19 Kids and Counting" clan doing nothing, earning and spending big and still cadging money. Derick, who has a new baby and plenty of time to bash transgender on Twitter, really irks them. The self-styled missionary claims to need travel expenses for unspecified "humanitarian work" that will benefit 2,000 lives in northwest Arkansas.

Critics pointed out that A) he lives in NW Arkansas B) has given no details and C) has never showed accountability for money raised for the first mission trip.

Duggar-Dillards work the nomenclature

"19 Kids and Counting" Derick and Jill Dillard vaguely alluded on Facebook to "serving" at the ministry school as though he's already trained and is teaching there.

Then there's their pretentious Dillard Family Ministries (a site to pay them to do volunteer work). The donation link was only recently removed from the Duggar Family Blog despite the fact that they'd been back in "Counting On" for ages. Now they're fundraising through Pure Charity to make it look like a benevolent 501 C3 type non-profit instead of a personal bank account. Well, if you can't dazzle 'em with brilliance, baffle 'em with b.s.

Millionaire Duggars seek donations?

In 2008, the Duggars made around $25,000-$40,000 from "19 Kids and Counting." "Counting On" probably makes more since Josh Duggar went astray in adultery and pedophilia. Then there's 10 years of inflation. Jana Duggar is worth $400,000 and owns valuable commercial real estate.

Jinger Duggar Vuolo is a millionaire and may get richer if she, Jill, Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth and and Jessa Seewald win their lawsuit against the cops over incest name leaks. So why does Joy beg wedding gifts for brother Joseph Duggar and Derick, money to pay for Bible school?
