I just got an email from Air Canada, proudly announcing that they have created a begging website, so your friends and family can fund your travel dreams. That is so yuck. I am very disappointed in them.
Because people don't just make gofundme pages for those, right? Bless your hearts Air Canada for getting in on that mess
Some of the things I've been asked to donate to are mind-boggling. I have donated mainly to relatives because most of my relatives are honest people, and if they say that someone needs money for an important reason I tend to believe them. (I know who isn't honest.) I didn't donate when my niece wanted donations to pay for car repairs so that her SO wouldn't have to walk to work, but my feeling on that was that walking to work wasn't that big a deal. One of his co-workers repaired their truck, so now he has a ride, and the fact that he walked to work showed that he was serious about working. However, I did donate to my cousin's son and his wife when their baby was born needing a serious operation. I know my cousin well, and she's honest. I'm sure that if she found out that someone she asked for donations for was scamming, she'd pay people back herself and that person would be on her hit list, which is not a good place to be.
But still...funding someone's vacation? Unless it's mine or Mr. Sirius', it's not happening.
