An old friend of mine was just in a very serious accident (he was literally shot to protect a woman he never met before!) and his family set up an online donation page to help with his medical expenses- I am 100% in favor of this and immediately donated $50.
But while I was on the website, I started perusing to see other's stories...and was shocked to find a whole section dedicated to weddings and honeymoons!! So many people just straight out asking for money- and they don't even have a sad story about job loss or anything! Most of them have professional engagement photos as their profile so they can't exactly be kicking rocks poor!! I am appalled by this, as I'm planning my own wedding right now and would never dream of "begging" for contributions! One girl even went as far as to say "this website takes 5%, so please add 5% to your amount"
