I think crowd sourcing has been a GREAT and fantastic way for folks who do not have the resources, to pay for surgeries, burned down homes, help with medical bills etc. Please read that again. I think it is GREAT to help those in need who do not have the means and are in emergencies and need the help. With that said....what, pray tell, causes a person to see a scratch on their car, and think 'I'll create a Go Fund Me page so other people will pray to fix it!" Just today, a gal in town did just that because someone scratched her car. This is an upper middle class college age girl with the physical means to work and earn the money. We are seeing it again and again and again...I want to make a music CD, attend camp in Alaska, quit your 9-5 job and have a podcast instead, go to a specialized school....BUT have someone else pay for it. I am just wanting to understand this. Why are folks not responsible for supporting their own life, dreams, projects and trips? I am seriously confused. If I wanted something, I worked harder and earned the money, cut back spending, found a second stream of income, got creative. I never ask for a handout. I believe hard work builds self respect. Do other people see this constantly? I am literally not understanding the mindset.
