While reading about future plans to establish “The Haleigh Bug” Foundation, these names immediately came to mind.
They all are parents of missing or murdered children who have been instrumental in establishing charities to help others. Some have worked with state and ferderal government to pass laws to protect children by stressing the need for greater awareness of missing or abducted children issues. Others have specifically worked for harsher penalties for the perpertrators of the crimes. Something they all seemed to have was a commitment to a cause and a calling. It is difficult to phathom it was a chosen career path but only they can say for sure.
So which willl “The Haleigh Bug” foundation be, if formally established ?
Someday the question may be answered but for now the focus needs to remain on missing Haleigh Cummings.
“Our goal eventually is to develop this into a charity who helps families of missing children, and we want to allot them a certain period where they don’t have to worry about going to work, how they’re going to take care of the bills. We’re also looking for a career path for Crystal too, to keep her mind going…to keep her strong so I was thinking there’s nobody better to head this up than someone going through this themselves and she’s very excited about it,” said Ragan.
While their daughter, Casey, remains in jail as a suspect in Caylee Anthony’s death, George and Cindy Anthony announced their own intent to WESH2 News to start their own foundation.
Caylee’s grandparents are getting ready to unveil a Caylee Anthony foundation that will have a search and rescue component like a page from the Texas Equusearch playbook. At the same time, they’re coming out against a permanent Caylee memorial along Suburban Drive.
George and Cindy Anthony unveiled a new search boat named for Caylee. They also unveiled plans for a Caylee Marie Anthony Foundation they both will spearhead.
The boat was built by the Anthony’s long time ally Dennis Milstead of Kid Finder’s network with $30,000 donated from the Never Lose Hope Foundation.”
They funded the boat and an ATV to start us out with the search group,” Milstead said.
“I never want to look for a child in the water or the woods and stuff but if that’s what we have to do that’s what we’re going to have to do,” George Anthony said.
