Turns out the poor little mangled girl, while genuinely mangled (by her grandfather’s pit bulls – parenting alert!) was not asked to leave a KFC franchise for frightening the other customers. That was Granny’s idea. Smart lady. The outraged public kicked in $135,000 in donations.
This isn’t the only reason I stopped donating to crowd funding sites, but it’s one of them. It used to be called panhandling. I get up at 5:00 a.m. every day to write before heading to a job, and some Kickstarter leech wants me to fund her so she can stay at home and write a novel? #GoFundYourself.
