Pure Charity agreed that this was not a legit non-profit and took Derick's fundraiser down. Now the "Counting On" celebrity wants a Harley to do mission work. That seems to be spreading an anti-LGBT agenda. As Ben and Jessa Seewald offer prayers on Twitter for Puerto Rico and Mexico, their brother-in-law continues to bash a transgender tween.

Derick Dillard confuses charity with GoFundMe

The Duggar son-in-law struggles with transparency and accountability on Dillard Family Ministries and Pure Charity.

The charity donation site seeks fundraisers that help others, not those that pay people to do volunteer work. Other CCSM "missionaries" are having trouble raising money on the site because they try to sell it as a stand-alone charity. If the "Counting On" star wanted to raise money for himself, he should have used GoFundMe.

Why does Derick Dillard need money?

The Duggar family sees themselves as televangelists on their reality show. Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar claim to do it for the glory of God.
