The Duggars may have made millions from their now-cancelled TLC show, 19 Kids And Counting, but now they are pleading for money after reportedly losing $25 million—and counting.
According to a report, the Duggars lost their $45,000-per-episode paychecks along with endorsement deals, sponsorships, speaking engagements and royalties, which could amount to a “$25 million or more a year” loss in total.
And since they’ve taken such a devastating blow to their income, RadarOnline reported that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have taken to their fans for financial support.
On their official YouTube page, Duggar Studios, the family is asking of viewers to donate money so they can create “fresh quality content. Every contribution is helpful, big or small,” they wrote.
The last video on the page was posted more than two months ago, well before the show was cancelled by TLC on July 16. However, the family has shared a video on their official website, DuggarFamily.com.
The video in question, though, showed Jim Bob giving Michelle a custom-made ring for their anniversary filled with gemstones for all of their 19 children.
