These days, multiple YouTubers, influencers and internet personalities have chosen to participate in charities aimed at supporting a particular community or funding research for a particular disease. One of these people is Girard Khalil, who is better known perfectionist On the Internet, who has actively participated in known organizations Open Hand Foundation. however, A recent investigation has accused him of keeping more than $600,000 dollars unspent.
Recently, YouTubers known as Karl Jobst and SomeOrdinary Gamers shared videos in which they mentioned that the Open Hand Foundation, which The Completionist’s father Charles Khalil founded in memory of his wife Karen, and in which the YouTuber and his four brothers play active roles, There is currently over $600,000 in donations intact in a bank account. And there is no evidence that this money has reached foundations or organizations working to cure dementia.
The information comes just weeks after the Indyland event organized by The Completionist and focused on raising funds for the Open Hand Foundation. During the last broadcast of the event, the YouTuber mentioned that the money raised will be sent to the University of California, San Francisco. Alzheimer’s Association, and other similar organizations. however, There is no mention of this organization as a contributor to the Alzheimer’s Association’s official site.
According to Carl Jobst and Ordinary Gamers, publicly available tax returns show the charity has raised $655,520 since its inception, but donated nothing, despite recording thousands of dollars in administrative expenses. When questioned, Zac Khalil, Zirad’s brother and one of the main members of the organization, stated that the money was not used. As they are looking for a suitable benefactor. Here is what he commented:
“Before officially registering as a foundation, we donated body parts for research and made financial contributions to an organization that, in our opinion, did not make enough progress in the fight against this debilitating disease. This past experience has taught us the importance of careful consideration in our partnerships, and that is why we continue to seek suitable partners and recipients for our grants.
While we understand the need for due diligence in charitable activities, Open Hand Foundation’s suggestion of wrongdoing is unreasonable and baseless.
We conduct our operations within the bounds of legal and ethical standards and any implication to the contrary is unfounded. Our Foundation has always acted in good faith and we take any suggestion of wrongdoing very seriously. We stand by our track record and integrity.
However, as you probably already realized, This contradicts the messages of the totalitarian, where he noted that it had already been donated to several organizations. In this regard, Carl Jobst and SomeOrdinary Gamers had a recorded conversation with the YouTuber, in which he mentioned the following:
“I know that [el dinero] It was at a certain time and that is what made me actively work. In 2021 I was informed that the money had not yet been transferred, and that made me say, ‘This is not good’ and that’s when I personally got involved in moving it and… not 2021, but last year, 2022 .
“I assumed it was going to a charity and I guessed wrong.”
While there has been no official statement from The Open Hand Foundation or The Completionist regarding this investigation at this time, the damage has already been done. Whatever is said about this, the image of this organization and YouTuber has been tarnished. In related matters, a formula emerges that indicates Mario Kart 9. Similarly, new information is known about the port The Hogwarts Legacy Switch to en.
It’s a shame that the reputation of such a loved one as The Completionist has somehow been tarnished by this donation scandal. Although the money remained intact and was not spent on other things, the unfulfilled promise of research remains quite controversial.
