The following message is from Jeff Alldredge:
Dear friends, we would sincerely appreciate your help. A travesty has happened to our family, and we are reaching out to all of you for prayers and support.
Many of you are aware that a short while ago we were blessed to add Donna to our family . This was a joyous occasion, but it was followed shortly after by severe prejudice and persecution against our way of life and, in particular, Donna’s
specific family life.
Donna is currently entangled in a critical custody dispute on the basis of her decision to join our family. Sadly, this type of persecution is not new to people practicing plural marriage, and it has been the bane of many plural families for over 150 years .
The mounting legal fees needed to fight this battle and to reunite mother and daughter are overwhelming. Hence - this GoFundMe appeal. We are reaching out to those of you who can help to donate a lot or a little.
We have been fighting for years against the persecution of our lifestyle, and still there are those who think it is acceptable to deprive us of our rights and to treat us like second-class citizens. We have attorneys who have stepped in to get Donna's daughter back, but we cannot continue to fund them without your help.
THANK YOU !!!!!!
The Alldredge family.
