Corey Feldman signed off of Twitter on Dec. 23, 2017, after posting a birthday message to Corey Haim, who would have celebrated his 46th birthday on Saturday, and sharing a final video thanking those who supported his Truth Campaign. The campaign officially ran from October 24, 2o17 and concludes on December 24, 2017.
The IndieGoGo fundraiser will officially shut down after the 24th and will no longer be open for donations. To date, Feldman has raised approximately $300,000 as he publicly outed the names of his molesters and garnered support for bringing awareness to Hollywood’s protection of pedophiles within the industry. The GoFund Me will be open to receive donations past the Truth Campaign’s conclusion.
Throughout the campaign, there were several question and answer sessions hosted by Corey Feldman that addressed many user’s questions. Some wanted to know why the campaign was originally set for $10 million than the price lowered. Some asked why Corey Feldman felt he needed to make a full-length movie instead of a documentary.
Others challenged the idea that he needed security and even questioned whether he used security when out in public. In interviews with Dr. Oz and Kerri Kasem for the radio show Gurvey’s Law, both stated Corey Feldman and his family did travel with security at all times.
Some have questioned whether there really is a pedophile ring in existence that Feldman needed to dismantle. Feldman stated that since he was allegedly abused by one person who lied about his relationship with a man he said was his father, yet was actually his lover, that there was an indication the two were working together.
He has named multiple men who sexually abused him and said he has information (some from outside sources) that leads to six men. Feldman spoke to the Los Angeles Police Department and shared those names with authorities.
One of Feldman’s supporters had launched a White House petition to solicit names in order to see the statute of limitations overturned in sexual abuse cases. The petition failed to reach the 100,000 signatures, but Corey Feldman found another way to address the problem with the statute of limitations.
In December, Corey Feldman was named the Ambassador for Child USA, which is a non-profit think tank working to reduce the number of child sexual abuse cases nationwide. One area that Child USA is continually working is in overturning statute of limitation laws.
It is expected that throughout 2018, Corey Feldman will work closely with Child USA in the fight to overturn statute of limitation laws on a state by state basis.
One of the most frequent and important questions people have asked is what will happen to the money raised now that the Truth Campaign is coming to an end and the goal has not been met. First, Corey Feldman continues to believe for a miracle that will come in the nick of time.
Next, Corey Feldman has stated he won’t give up, regardless of whether he meets the $1 million goal by December 24, 2017. He has indicated he will try to seek

Though Corey Feldman is going silent on Twitter he will return in 2018. On January 6, 2018, Lifetime will air the movie A Tale of Two Coreys that Corey Feldman executive produced.
