    Speaking for myself, I have a charity budget each year (tiny) and an entertainment budget each year (tinier.) I don't know a single soul who donates every cent of their disposable income to charitable causes. Not one. If I were to donate to this guy, it would be out of my entertainment budget. Logically, it's not a one thing or the other decision.

    May as well complain that buying that $5.79 six pack is taking food out of the mouths of orphans. Yeah, technically it's true, but it's not relevant to a hiking forum.

    I'm watching this closely, because if it works I think I'm gonna start a go fund me for my early retirement. I'll let ya'll know when I get it going because I know everyone is eager to chip in.

    What's relevant is it's a request for charity. A bad charity providing no positive results for those in need.

    I don't see anything "entertaining" about funding a sponge, so I can't connect your dots. And my six packs go for $11.00 - 12.00.

    What happened to the old fashioned way of making money as a last resort...selling one's body? I mean I would rather do that than GFM, but I suspect I'd probably go broke either way. Not much of a market for 39 year old Dad-bods out there.
    While searching for that unknown edge in life, never forget to look home. For the greatest edge you can find in life is to stand in the protective shadow of those who love you.

    I remember fondly those college years when I sold my plasma to fund my fun.

    Teach a man to fish! Right�� How much has he raised?
    Love the thread and most of the well thought out posts!
    I won't be giving him jack but without him I could not have enjoyed this thread. Did he lie to anyone?
    money makes people do and say thing all the time, it made him start begging and most of you start talking about it.
    I have money and if I bump into a hiker struggling to stay on the trail because of money you can bet I will fund him/her to stay out on the trail a little longer
    I could need a Sherpa at some point and a 29yr old young man with a strong back could potentially keep me on the trail a little longer
    There is a reason we all like the AT community
    Now everyone needs to post a devils advocate post in response to their own original post
    It should be entertaining
