Crowdfunders Appear to Troll Mother

The charitable crowdfunding crowd has pushed back so hard that a mother seeking to raise GBP5,000 to fund her family’s trip to DisneyWorld has (supposedly) withdrawn her plea after raising only GBP15.

The responses were harsh, reprimanding her for asking for money for a vacation and articles were written in a local newspaper making her ” out to be a awful person when I was only thinking of my children and making them happy. “

The site, however, appears to be still up.

Keeping the tabloids in business…
