Let’s talk about the Size Diversity Task Force. “The Size Diversity Task Force is a member-supported, member-run organization that advocates for equal rights and social justice for people of all sizes, weights, shapes, and abilities.” And according to her blog, she just runs their website.
Do a Go Daddy search. It is registered to Ragen. Look at the registration form for the Las Vegas meeting. The registration fees are being collected by Ragen’s girlfriend, who coincidentally, lives at the same address as Ragen. All donations are sent directly via Paypal.
But let’s get back to this ’cause’. Because once again, Ragen makes promises that she
can’t doesn’t keep. Ragen is now asking for money to make the world’s largest body positive paper mache sculpture. And she is even going to get it in the Guinness Book of World Records.
On 1/7/2013, she makes a video asking people to return soda cans and donate the money to the Size Diversity Task Force. All money is to be sent via paypal.
On 3/3/13, she held a “Diet Book Liberation” event. She got together with a bunch of friends to buy used diet books to use for this sculpture.
On 1/17/2014, she held an ‘Activism Weekend‘ to build this sculpture.
The last update to the blog about this project was 5/13/2013.
So, as any legit charity would disclose, how much was donated? How much was spent on diet books? How much went to expenses? Where is the sculpture? Where is the accountability? And what happened to all of the money that people donated?
