IMO, these "Go Fund Me" things are utter BS! It really pisses me off when I see people get on the internet and throw a story of woe at you in hopes of getting money. I have a $5,000 medical deductible that I have had to meet the last 4 years in a row and it royally sucks, but I would never dream of asking ANYONE for monetary help to pay MY bills. To me it's no different than standing on a street corner with a sign begging for money. Maybe instead of buying that Daytona, they should have been putting more money into a FSA or HSA account for future catastrophic medical events? Not trying to be a hard-ass, it's just about life/adversity/responsibilities. You make your choices so you should have to live with them.

Nothing personal towards the folks in this particular event - and that's part of the problem. How do you know the money is really going towards medical bills, and not a new house or BMW?
