why are ppl so selfish!

i am trying to raise money here for a family in desperate need. they had a preemie baby (3 lbs0 they are in debt 6 figures in medical bills, lost their home, bikes, cars etc. cant afford to even get the things they need like enough groceries....and no one is even pitching in one penny? selfish and ungrateful. so you want to save money for some expensive fancy toy, they just want to eat and keep up with the medical care to keep their lil one fighting for her life. ppl shock me sometimes, but not in a good way

  • Some people aren't always truthful about trying to raise money. There are a ton of places if they really just want food.

  • i do understand that....and they are not asking for anything. its a group of us that know them trying to raise money so i said things like you can write checks in their name so you know i cant cash it...or just preemie outfits cause i dont have an infant let along a preemie

  • I am sorry you are having problems but it may not be selfishness. A lot of people are being laid off and alot of people are in similar (if not the medical part) situations. Good Luck.

  • yes but i live ina millitary community. we have free housing and compltely paid health insuarnce...their is NO reason for ppl in my community to be selfish. we can afford at least two cans of green breans and something for the baby. living on post we dont pay electric, gas, water, rent. our health insurance is no excuse from the military community here

  • not everyone is selfish. i give what i can when i can but were struggling too and sometimes food turns into whats called ramon noodles for a few days. i didn't know about this problem.

  • Call the local TV station and tell them. They will probably get things started so there is a bank account that ppl can donate to and stuff, and let ppl know what is happening with this poor family.
