I just went and had a quick look at the page, to see how it went, and found this message:
'Ok guys, I have just taken £717 to the bank that was raised from the benefit. In total, including donations we've raised £1293 in just a month, which is fine, but it's not enough.
We still need around £1500 more, so keep a look out for more fundraising events happening to get me to Chile!
If anyone would like to do anything themselves to help raise the rest, I would really appreciate it.'
After reading some replied to my original post, I admit I felt bad, and figured that I had jumped on this girl too early, and condemned her to E-Hell unfairly.
However, after this update I am back to my previous opinion - especially as she is now outright just asking people to organise events for her, to raise her money.
Fundraisers are, in my opinion, to help people who can't help themselves - who are in real dire need of help. Not for people who want to take part in something far away, but can't afford to pay for it themselves.
