Corey Feldman Continues To Get Support On GoFundMe After Truth Campaign Ends
Corey Feldman's Truth Campaign ended on December 24, 2017, but that hasn't stopped people from donating to his GoFundMe account and supporting his cause. Feldman launched the Truth Campaign on October 24, 2017, after attention from the Harvey Weinstein scandal prompted people to ask the child actor to speak out on sexual abuse in Hollywood. Feldman has repeatedly stated that Hollywood is a dangerous place for children and teens but it was the Truth Campaign that brought the most direct statements from the actor. Corey Feldman has revealed the names of three alleged sexual predators who operated in Hollywood during his career: Martin "Marty" Weiss, Jon Grissom, and Alphy Hoffman.
Though Corey Feldman has stepped away from social media to spend time with his wife and son over the holidays, his supporters are still going strong as they prepare for the next phase of the campaign.
Feldman had originally planned to raise $10 million with his campaign. He wanted $1 million for making the movie Coreyography and the rest of the money was to be used for legal expenses, preparing and mailing campaign perks, and the cost of armed security for two years.
The IndieGoGo raised $273,151 out of the $1 million goal.
While supporters can no longer donate to the IndieGoGo, the GoFundMe raised $450 on Christmas day.
As people continue to donate through the GoFundMe, many have asked what is next for Corey Feldman. According to his last tweets, he has vowed not to give up and is considering additional ways to raise the funds needed to make his movie, provide security for two years, and have the legal team needed to ensure he is protected when naming alleged pedophiles in his film.
Though Feldman conceded, he vowed to continue fighting and said he wouldn't quit.
On January 6, 2018, at 8 p.m. ET/PT Lifetime will air the movie A Tale of Two Coreys. The movie, executively produced by Corey Feldman, will cover the years when Corey Feldman and Corey Haim were teen idols starring in a string of top movies making them superstars. The movie will cover some of the sexual abuse they endured.
According to Feldman, he supervised the script and Corey Haim's interviews were used for accuracy. Corey Haim passed away on March 10, 2010.
