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 Trustc/o Chase1100 Willamette St.Eugene, OR 97401USA
Donations to the David W Oaks Irrevocable Trust are not tax deductible.
