CLARIFICATION: the Action for Oaks Fund and the David W Oaks Irrevocable Trust Fund

— filed under:

A message from the Staff and Board of MindFreedom International

On 1 December 2012, MFI Executive Director David Oaks sustained a serious injury from a fall which resulted in him breaking his neck. While trying to get news out to members and support David and his family, we invited people to support not only MFI but a separate fund called Action for Oaks. This fund was intended to support MFI projects of particular interest to David especially Creative Maladjustment Week and the MindFreedom Shield.
 
Contributions to this fund were not designated to help with David’s medical bills. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused. Effective immediately, we will no longer be soliciting donations to Action for Oaks – if you want your donation to MFI to support a particular project, please let us know when making your donation. 
 
Donations to MindFreedom and donations that were previously made to the Action for Oaks fund are tax deductible.
 
If you want to contribute directly towards David’s medical bills, his family has set up a separate trust fund. You can donate to that fund by sending a check made out to the David W Oaks Irrevocable Trust and mailing it to:
 
David W Oaks Irrevocable Trust
c/o Chase
1100 Willamette St.
Eugene, OR 97401
USA
 
Donations to the David W Oaks Irrevocable Trust are not tax deductible.
 
In Support,
 
Staff and Board of MindFreedom International

Laura Delano - Psychiatric survivor blogger activist

Laura works as a peer specialist in the traditional mental health system and writes a blog at madinamerica.com, where she is sharing her story of recovery from psychiatry. After living with psychiatric labels for 13 years and taking psychotropic medications for ten of them, Laura says she found liberation in 2010 from her psychiatric diagnoses, from her reliance upon the mental health system, and from the once deep-seated belief that she was sentenced to a life-long "mental illness." Laura says, "I am proud to be a member of the MindFreedom International community for all MFI does to promote equality, justice, and civil rights for people who have been labeled 'mentally ill.'"
