Crowdfunding Becoming Electronic Panhandling

Fed up with getting crowdfunding pleas from women who want to remove the tattoo from their forehead?

One blogger has “new rules” on when she will donate:

  • someone she knows & trusts makes a personal plea;
  • the campaign gets someone closer to a dream;
  • it benefits children; or
  • it covers emergencies, medical or funeral costs.

Otherwise, it’s just electronic panhandling and this person is sick of it!
