Is another Duggar charity scandal brewing?

Just weeks after Jill Duggar and husband Deryck Dillard offered refunds to fans who supported their controversial mission work, cousin Amy Duggar is now connected to a potential charity controversy of her own, RadarOnline.com can reveal.

On her website with new husband Dillon King, www.Dillandduggs.com, the couple promote Go Shout Love, an organization claiming to help families with a child suffering from a rare illness.

"Half of everything we earn each month goes straight to our featured families to help with medical costs and related expenses!" the Go Shout Love website claims.

However, the organization is not currently recognized as a non-profit foundation or charity by the government.

"Please be aware that we are currently working towards establishing a non-profit foundation for Go Shout Love, but at this time do not hold a 501c3 status," they claim in the fine print.

Without the designation of a nonprofit organization, fans' donations can be spent however the charity pleases, with no public record of how it is distributed.

The wealthy Duggar family has long been criticized for begging fans for cash.

Jill and Deryck received backlash after requesting donations for mission work overseas without explaining where they were or what they were doing.

And fans were outraged when the family asked for money to operate their official YouTube page, Duggar Studios, but failed to upload any new videos.
