Am I the only one that finds it getting out of hand?  So many people are looking for hand outs.  

I have a friend who had a baby, she asked for people to cook meals and or order meals for her for the first few weeks.  Then she posted asking for money to be donated so she can buy a hearing aid.  

I have several friends who have asked for money for funeral expenses for a family member.  And I even had a friend start a page up for money a security deposit for a new apartment because she is being evicted from her current apartment.

Yup, I just posted a similar post a total stranger was promoting her friend on a fb site who wants money to continue fertility treatments.

I'm going to set up a vacation fund and ask people to donate.

When my husband's first wife died he had to ask for donations from friends and family.  Her medical expenses drained them.

If you don't want to donate, don't.  It's pretty simple.

My cousin had one to give his daughter a "dream visit" this last summer. He doesn't have custody and she lives in Canada with her mother, but he wanted like $5,000 given to him, the consensus of the family was "damn, I want my kid to have a good summer too" he got like $300.

The ones that get me are people who never talk to you and then PM you on FB asking you to go donate to them.
