"Goblet of Fire"? Isn't that one of the Harry Potter Films??

Widowan, as mentioned , Kate said the book was due out in April/May, I presumed to coincide with the Anniversary of Madeleine's disappearance . I think it more than likely the Publisher pulled the plug on the deal the second book produced only 29 new pages added on to the first book so people who bought it would have felt cheated.

Nah, that was Kate and Gerry and the Goblet of New Zealand White. It followed on from Kate and Gerry and the Unturned Stone, and Kate and Gerry and the Bedchamber of Secrets. I'm waiting for Kate and Gerry are the Prisoners of Amaralaban.

Going back to the title of the post, the fund is most certainly running out. What significance will this have ?

The website is useless now. No good quality items to purchase from the store, the old reliable donate button not working and clearly the book sales will not allow one to do ones shopping in Monsoon or Gap any longer.
No marathons on the horizon either, but in any event those proceeds would most likely need to be given to the pesky Missing People charity, Kate being an ambassador and all.

What's going to happen now ?

Well surely they cant possibly have the cheek to ask the public for any more donations after all the money being spent by 2 police forces. Can they.?

Still leads you to your PayPal account if you select the German language option, but no online store. I suspect that this is down to the site admin being cr*p as usual.

Families of other 'missing' children are going to be a tad disappointed if the pot's gone dry.... Perhaps CR will give a small donation.

T4two - the buttons are there in all languages for me, but why I try to donate, I get brought to a page which says they are updating and check back soon. Is it just me then ?

Actually T4two, if this was normal circumstances with normal people involved I reckon this wouldn't signify c**** admin, it would more likely signify no admin at all...

Die sichere Rückkehr und Wiedervereinigung mit ihrer Familie von Madeleine McCann (entführt am Donnerstag, den 3. Mai 2007 in Praia da Luz/Portugal) zu gewährleisten.
Zu bewirken, daβ gründliche Recherchen im Zusammenhang mit Madeleines Entführung angestellt werden und daβ ihre Entführer wie auch jene, die eine Rolle gespielt haben oder spielen, indem sie die Entführer unterstützen oder decken, identifiziert und gerecht bestraft werden.
Madeleines Familie Unterstützung, einschlieβlich finanzieller Unterstützung, zu gewähren.
Wenn die obigen Ziele erfüllt sind, soll die Zielsetzung der Einrichtung sein, solche Ziele in ähnlichen Fällen – in Groβbritannien, Portugal und in anderen Ländern – zu verfolgen.
Spenden an den Fonds können Sie auf folgenden Wegen an uns überweisen:

ÜBERS INTERNET:



Über Paypal (Britische Pfund/GBP)


Über Paypal (US Dollar/USD)
 

It works .....are they still gullible there or what....

Could Sy have asked that they hold off on doing anything til the investigation runs its course? The fund serves no useful purpose for a search - the reason for it, touted in Kate's first bewk, was that it was needed because no police in the world were searching for MM, and as we know, we now have 2 police forces working on the case.

Having McCanns doing their own stuff at this point would be very unwelcome. That doesn't mean the website can't be kept up but they may have asked them to just take a step back - or even their own lawyer or PR consultant could have told them that running around promoting bewks that contain info that has been shown to be false and unhelpful, and so on, is not a good thing for them to do now that SY and PJ are on the case again.

As far as the buttons not working on the website that is probably because the Admin isn't doing much do to there not being much to do - if McCanns can't run around promoting it/asking for help for a search already being undertaken by the Met & PJ, the website might have fallen into disrepair.

Thought everyone had!  

What do you want to know, if anything?

A couple of 'gems' on German CW:

Kate:                     "Leaks, lies, misinformation that went to the media in August 2007 gave the impression that Madeleine was dead and that we had something to do with it. Whoever caused this, tried to tell the world that Madeleine is dead. And THEN people STOP looking for her. For us that was just desperate."

11 MONTHS BEFORE GA's supposedly 'hindering/hampering the 'search' BOOK!

(which relates to their libel claims trial.)

Gerry:                   I would like to tell her how much we loved her and that we won’t give up looking for her.

"WE LOVED HER"?

Surely he meant to say "how much we LOVE her"
