I was referring to the fact that they had someone else write the essay while pretending it was the kid. They apparently didn't even proof read it. Probably not the best route to go when they're basically begging strangers for free money. I wouldn't be shocked if there wasn't even a kid involved, just a new and easier way to panhandle.It says goal is $1K
Yes. Kids can lease animals to show, that lease can be pretty darn cheap or free if you want it to be. My cousin and his boys had an arrangement to show cattle for a man, all they paid was the feed it took to keep them during the required time/show season."I'm reaching out to you today to share my lifelong passion for show cattle and to ask for your help in pursuing my dreams in the world of livestock exhibitions. Raising, training, and showing cattle has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember,"
Those words might sound impressive if written by or about someone that actually had a couple/3 decades under their belt, but looking at his picture, just how long could it be?
I used to donate calves to FFA/4H kids that had the desire to raise one but whose parents couldn't really afford to purchase a calf and I'm glad I was able to do it. Definitely not high pedigreed calves but not culls either.
In this case, I'd be more inclined to make a donation to an FFA/4H chapter than directly to a gofund me thing.
