I have a friend trying to get her kids back. She has set up an account asking for donations for legal fees. Do you think its a good idea or trashy?

She didn't have a job or a place to live. Then she gave them up to the fathers.

I think she is obviously desperate and that could drive someone to do things that maybe they shouldn't.

 if she cant pay to get her kids back then I think asking others to pay is not showing good judgement or responsibility

It depends, who is she asking? If it's family and close friends, I think it's ok, I am sure they would like to support her. To me, it is no different than asking for donations for a charity that someone feels connected to.

I don't think it's trashy. If she is back in her feet and can afford to provide properly for her kids then it's fine.

She didn't have a job or a place to live. She gave them up to the fathers. After that the fathers went after her and claimed she was crazy and unstable. She is now stable, brought a house and married.  After the last 2 years of jumping from job to job and man to man.
