Well, not me but my cousin. I recently got a letter from a cousin telling all of us about another cousin that got divorced and is struggling financially. She asked for a small amount but did imply that she would like us to send more(it was just the way it was worded.) This letter also went to my sister(who nearly lost her home recently) and to another cousin who lives in an uheated home. They are not in the financial situation to pay out to anyone, not even a little. My side of the family is very upset with this letter, because we have all been there, yet never opened our hands out. Some of us have not seen this couisin in 20 yrs either(the one that got divorced). My dh has been furloughed and that is after a two year pay freeze, but I did send a small amount because I feel sorry for her.
What do you think? Do you think the letter was tacky? Would you have sent money? Do you think my family has a right to be upset? My divorced cousin knows this letter was sent out, if that makes a difference.
I just want other opinions. Thanks
