#GivingTuesday



Sharoni was a brilliant light onto this world, and her life was cut short by a wicked man whose sole ambition in life is to manipulate, use and abuse people, preying on them with no concern at all for their well being. Thusly, it has become our mission to expose cult figures like this and their corrupting methodologies and tactics, in hopes that it will prevent future tragedies from ever occurring. Unfortunately, Sharoni's tragedy is one of many thousands because these types of abuses have grown out of control. As a result of this epidemic there are thousands of destructive cults in our country today and these abusers prey on the sick, naive, weak and vulnerable. My daughter and thousands of other innocent young souls have no chance against these types of monsters!

Please join us in raising funds on #GivingTuesday to help support our mission and programs here at FACT. 

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. 

Our work depends upon contributions from generous supporters like you! Please Help Today

Some of our Programs and Initiatives are explained in detail below.

FACT's Preventative Education Initiative and Study Guide:

Most people are unaware about how to prevent abuse or even recognize what emotional, spiritual or mental abuse and manipulation is. Our goal behind this Study Guide is to Empower as many people as possible about the Red Flags of Abuse, Manipulation, Predatory Personalities, Predatory Groups and how to avoid the ever growing Situations that vulnerable people fall prey to - Especially unsuspecting young college students - which predatory groups specifically target. Please help us by donating what you can to help us get the F.A.C.T. Preventative Education Guide into the hands of as many students, parents and educators as possible.  
 
An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure!
 
 

Preventative Education Handouts:

We've designed handouts for parents, students, activists etc who want to help educate people about these issues. Your generous donations help us print and mail these handouts to anyone who request them. These handouts have been given out at protests, college campuses, high schools, and here are some recent pictures of parents in Michigan preparing these handouts to present to their local High School Counselors. Those same high school counselors have requested copies of F.A.C.T.S. Preventative Education Initiative and Study Guide!



We are also in the process of developing a couple of new programs, one of which is:

Books for Therapy

Many people who leave High Demand / High Control Groups and Cults are in no position financially to get professional therapy. And in all honesty, many therapists are not specifically trained in matters of cult abuse and exploitation. Books are an easy and Effective way to help those who want to help themselves.

This program - with your generous contributions, will provide books to victims of exploitation and abuse. We purchase used books on Amazon and ship them directly to the victim. Therapeutic books can help the person go from Victim to Survivor! A small example of some of the books :




We hope you will consider our organization this #GivingTuesday and help us in our Mission to save lives and end Exploitation and Abuse. Please Donate Today!

Help us get as many people involved as possible by spreading the word. Send a simple email to your friends, colleagues and family members asking them to support F.A.C.T. during the holiday giving season.

Help us get the word out about our #GivingTuesday campaign on Facebook and Twitter

On this big day, please do what you can for those who have been manipulated and afflicted by cults (especially the defenseless children and vulnerable elderly). Your giving can make an even bigger impact with the power of #GivingTuesday and with our access to matching funds.

We Thank You immensely for your generosity and support with our mission and programs. We wouldn't be able to do it without you!

Sincerely,
Tibor Stern
President of F.A.C.T.

Dear friends of F.A.C.T.,

It appears Jerry stocking has removed his article from the elphantjournal and Psychology Today. We have contacted the website admins, but have yet to hear back. We wanted to provide you with the links that were once active and are now private.

https://www.elephantjournal.com/author/jerry-stocking/

https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/sideways-view/201402/why-do-people-join-cults

The expose will remain the same, but we wanted to update you on the reason the links do not work any longer.

Sincerely,

Clergy Sex Abuse - CA Attorney Generals Call to Action

"In light of the news surrounding the sexual abuse of children by members of clergy or religious organizations across the country, the Department of Justice is gathering information from the public regarding complaints of this nature in California.

If you believe you have been a victim of sexual abuse or have information regarding incidents of sexual misconduct by clergy members, please fill out our online complaint form.

If you would like to provide other information, please email ClergyAbuse@doj.ca.gov."

https://oag.ca.gov/clergyabuse?fbclid=IwAR2C1RVCmBE3ZVVgdYQehi_yH_iNgVGnWjiOEKbIrNHgHMi1Xv1nbJFvrro
 


If you were a victim of sex abuse by a member of the clergy (any religious clergy) please take the time to file your report and encourage others to do the same, and then Follow-up with the Attorney Generals Office. 

Our FACT Sheet on "Why Predators are Attracted to Careers in the Clergy" is available for any individual, group, church, educator, counselor etc.

Front of FACT Sheet Handout
 Back of FACT Sheet Handout
The backside of this FACT Sheet quotes part of Joe Navarro's findings as a former FBI Counterintelligence Agent regarding "Why Predators are Attracted to Careers in the Clergy".

Some of the key reasons being:

- If the predator is in a position of authority within a religious organization, he or she can claim persecution by the "enemies" of the church of organization. Any outside scrutiny subjecting the predator to the sanitizing rays of light is thus characterized as "them", the unbelievers "against us".

- Predators have access to a ready/available pool of potential victims. Within a religious order, those potential victims are identified for the predator, who knows how often they will get together and where (Sunday worship service at 11 a.m. at local church for example)

- In most cultures, children pay deference to authority figures, especially religious ones. Knowing this, the predator can almost certainly count on children abiding by their sordid requests and keeping such matters "secret" There is ample evidence of this from history, social psychology and thousands of law suits.

Joe's findings are extensive and thorough - the above are just a few from his list.

Thank you,
The FACT Team

A Message from Tibor Stern, President of FACT.

Dear Friends and Followers of F.A.CT.,

It is this time of the year again “Giving Tuesday” an international day of giving. 
We at FACT, have had experienced an unusual influx of complaints from victims of tremendous inhuman abuses, in the form of undo influence, mental and physical torture, sexual and financial exploitation of innocent children and adults, brought on by thousands of psychopaths, sociopaths and self declared gods. 
Some of these complaints and cases we will publish in our upcoming newsletter. 
Every complaint that we receive sounds the same : I lost my daughter or son to this evil person who brainwashed my child to disconnect and cut all ties and interaction with their family. It is so typical for all so called “Gurus” to use the same method of exclusion. 
It is usually too late by the time the family finds out the real reason for their child's new disconnected behavior towards their own family. By then, the victims have lost their critical thinking.
We at FACT see this tragic epidemic in our society, called “CULTS”. There is an estimated more than 3000 different cults existing in US.
In addition to this, there is an estimated more than 7% of US populations who are somehow involved with different cult’s. The tragic stories of destruction of families by thousands of evil minded individuals have no regard for the immeasurable suffering they bring to the victims and their families.

Our mission at FACT is to educate potential victims and their families through social media, school systems, higher learning institutions, places of false worship of self declared god’s, and to stop the cult leaders.

We at FACT are a 501c3 non for profit organization and have been successful in many cases achieving above mentioned goals, with our very limited resources.
With your help we can do more. Reaching out to more families and victims.
It is a huge financial burden to fight this evil.
Unfortunately, the government doesn’t get involved with these groups due to “Freedom of Speech.” This right under the first amendment is totally twisted and abused by thousands of heartless self serving “Gurus."
Under that pretext, we have nothing but destruction and human suffering by Millions.
This is a serious epidemic that is going unnoticed up until your family is affected.

Please help us with your kind donation in this years upcoming Giving Tuesday. No amount is too small.

Your donation is 100% tax deductible and is tremendously Appreciated!

FACT received the highest possible rating by Charity watch, which is a Platinum Guide 5 star.

Every dollar received went 100 % for the cause.


If you would like to pledge a donation earlier than Nov 27th on Giving Tuesday here is the link to do so. https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/fact
 
Thank you and may God bless you and your loved ones and may we be able to help those who are in need.

As I always say, Those who don’t fight evil empower evil!

Sincerely,

Tibor Stern

The passing of the beloved Skip Campbell

Dear Campbell family, Law firm associates and friends,



With tremendous pain I would like to express my deepest condolences to Skip’s family and friends on the untimely passing of our beloved Skip.
In the short time that I knew Skip, I learned to respect his honesty and integrity.
This more than towering person had a heart and moral compass to bring justice to all victims.
His fingerprint in seeking justice for all victims of abuses will not go down unnoticed.
We at F.A.C.T. and the Stern family will forever be thankful for your tireless involvement to seek justice for all victims of abuses.
I personally want to thank you Lyn for being there for us.
May God give you and your family strength and may the respect, love, and good memories also give you strength to continue.
In honor of Skip’s life, I will donate $2500 to F.A.C.T.
Lyn, the news of his passing did not reach me in time, as such I was not able to attend the services.


May God bless his memories, may he rest in peace and God bless his family.

Sincerely,



Tibor Stern and the F.A.C.T. team.
