Donate money so I can play the lottery (I think this was an attempt at humor)
A screenshot taken before GoFundMe said Hell No!
One of the odd things that people use GoFundMe for is for making jokes. Today, a joker by the name of Cinnamon Nicole posted a GoFundMe campaign saying that her family had spent all their money playing Powerball, and were in dire need of cash. Some people seemed to miss the fact that it was a joke. Or at least, I presume that it was a joke considering that Nicloe said, "I'm certain that we will be able to pick ourselves up from the trenches of this lost [sic] and spend another fortune trying to hit it big again!" Nicole's GoFundMe was asking for 100K. GoFundMe killed the joke, saying that it violated their terms and conditions (I think they have an anti-gambling clause in there some place). Here is a big thumbs up to Nicole for a delightful joke.
