Crowd funding for Christmas presents
Answered 1 year ago
My cousin has set up a crowd funding for Christmas presents and asked us to donate. She smokes, drinks and just got a new tattoo. I said no, as did my siblings, but now my Aunty is sending us all messages constantly asking us to help her out because she is a single mum on the pension and can’t afford Christmas, where as we are all either double income or in my sister’s case make sacrifices to be a SAHM. How can I politely tell my Aunty to go f*%# herself and her daughter can do the same? We are growing tired of all the messages.
Have an answer?
Sounds like the cousin is a bludger who doesn't sacrifice so her kids get Christmas presents. Think ahead and plan. I saved for 6 months to make sure I could buy for my 3. It's called being responsible.
You have to decide what you want to do. Donate $5 or If you don’t want to, lie and say money is tight and you only just managed to get all your own kids presents by saving. Tell your aunt you are sorry but your daughter needs to do the same. It’s not a highly offensive thing to say. It’s also not telling her to go get fucked.
Anyway whatever you choose to do, goodluck!!
It’s a firm no - or you’ll be doing it every year. I would buy her children a small gift each anyway. Is your mum or dad (whoever the aunt is siblings with) able to tell their sister to back off? Might be more powerful coming from them.
