Whatever happened to the Jett Travolta Foundation?

HollywoodNews.com: You may wonder whatever happened to the Jett Travolta Foundation. The 16 year old autistic son of John Travolta and Kelly Preston died after hitting his head during a seizure in the Bahamas on January 2, 2009. Since then, a foundation set up in his name has given away roughly $56,000 according to the organization’s Form 990 filings.

    Rubbish. No money of the foundation goes to Scientology and your article text does no give any information on this either.

    Less than 10% to Scientology-related causes? Considering he’s a Scientologist, it’s pretty impressive that so little was allocated for such causes. RIP Jett!

    It’s good that the Travoltas are doing what they can to produce good from the unfortunate, untimely death of their son. During such a tragic event, one can only try to move on, and to practice charity in the name of their son is a good way to make sense out of a tragedy.

    Boy, antispinning, you’ve sure been busy, posting that same comment on multiple sites! Are you actually Louanne, or another scientologist doing the same thing?
    The form 990’s say that.

    Mr. Friedman may or may not *know* the facts, but he–and his source–couldn’t be more legally wrong and off-base.

    There is no such thing as a “Scientology Detox Facility.” Not in Ocala, not in Hollywood, not anywhere.

    There *are* dozens of detox facilities that license the highly successful (Think Kirstie Alley and thousands of others) detox regimens invented by Hubbard, Scientology’s founder.

    These NON-RELIGIOUS detox centers exist all around the world, in corporate settings, in neighborhoods, and even in a few prisons–where they are needed most!

    To think that using some of what one guy discovered makes everything “religious” or “Scientology” in nature is just sloppy thinking.

    Hmmm…well, actually, I’ve just looked up Friedman’s campaign of (no other words for it) hate and bile directed at Scientology, Scientologists in entertainment, and even toward their projects and their charities(!) and schools. (Roger! That’s just icky of you!)

    I have to conclude that Roger’s sin against readers goes deeper than ignorance. He’s just using us readers to whip his petty vendetta, based on God-knows-what personal slight he got from some celebrity Scientologist in the distant past. (Roger, no one cares!)

    Check the search engines. He’s waging a one-man war of his own.

    Aren’t there any honest journalists left?
