To clarify. A group calling itself by this name were going around door to door last summer. And since I am from the Midwest. I just am not sure if this is a legit organization or not. Before I decide to donate money or not to them.

Doubtful. Any organization that goes door to door looking for "donations" is usually a scam. Only donate to well known charities and reputable organizations to be sure that your money is being spent properly. I might add that I just looked into this org...and there are many folks describing it as a "cult".

Thank you! While I think they were in fact signing up new members. Do tho recall a suggested membership fee. The group just seemed oddish. I had just moved in from Iowa. Again thanks.

Stay away from NATLFED. Seems they claim connections to better known groups when they really have no connection, especially since they have a mortal fear of reaching out to any similar groups, anyway. If you've ever known somebody who fell into a brainwashing cult, you'll not think twice to repel these types. Some never fully recover.
