Massively off topic today but I’ve got a challenge to ask of you today. Don’t worry, I’m not going to hit you up for money!
You may well just hit delete and do nothing, but if you feel strongly about what I’m about to share, then you may find this something worthy to do.
No judgement either way.
Like I said, it’s massively off topic and not why you’re here.
I get that.
But it was on my mind and I wanted to share this with you.
After the rubbish of the last week or two when a multi-millionaire bigot had the hide to hit up the average punter and ask them to fund his cause – which now has over $2million believe it or not at the time of writing this.
Mind you, the interesting thing about that original go fund me post of Israel Folau’s had in the fine print that he didn’t have to use the funds for legal fight and could be used any which way he chose.
I don’t know about you, but that seems very dishonest and unChristian like. But what would I know?
Side note though, I know it’s been a long time since I read the bible, but the one part that I do remember as a kid having to go to church every Sunday was the “love everyone as I have loved you” part.
Maybe Israel is just a slow reader and hasn’t got that far yet?
Anyways, enough of my ranting, I wanted to try and do something different on this basis of this.
My challenge to you if you’re up for it is to go onto Go Fund Me and find a cause that you can support and throw them some cash instead.
Maybe, it’s a sick kid.
Maybe it’s someone who’s doing it a bit tough in life or a parent who lost a kid.
What prompted me to do this was the other night on facebook I saw a post pop up.
A girl that was in my brothers year at school two years below me ended up getting meningitis pretty bad and ended up losing her legs and most of her fingers and a bunch of other health related problems as a result.
She passed away last year but the post was from her mum who’s come on hard times and asking people to help her keep care of the horses her daughter loved.
I can’t imagine what it’s like for her to have to deal with those cards they were both dealt, firstly of having your child get dealt that bad deal when she was so young and then to have to bury her 20 odd years later and it got me thinking that maybe we should all pick someone on Go Fund Me to support.
Maybe it’s someone you have heard of, or know.
Maybe it’s some random person who just needs a better deck of cards to be dealt in their favour.
Now, I get no benefit from doing this. I’m just trying to pay it forward in a way and try and turn this whole rubbish about a guy who’s fast becoming our most disliked sportsman into a positive.
Like I said at the start, you may well just delete this and think nothing more of it.
But you also might be tempted to think of this as something that might be worth doing.
Like I said, no judgement either way. Cause of course I won’t know what you did.
I just thought I’d throw this out there and see if we can in fact get this becoming a thing.
Over to you.
