Subject: Actually you have it backwards
In reply to: So confused! 's message, "So can someone help me - I received a link to a gofundme page for a previous World Champion dancer to help her travel to law school (she also used promo material from LOTD in her ad)-is that how it works now? Is that what this generations is all about? Let's ask other people to pay our way. Get a loan, go where YOU can afford" on 22:35:57 06/25/17 Sun

The generation isn't about expecting other to pay your way. When you set up a crowdfunding you have no expectations. Instead you are just hoping. I never participate in any of the crowdfunding things I'm sent and I've never been harassed or badgered. The thing is, the generation is more likely to help out their peers. They believe in "IF we all give a little it will lighten the load." This generation is big into sharing the cost of things. Look how popular kickstarter is. But there's no expectation.
Why force her to rely on a loan that will just make the banks more money and ultimately hurt the economy? She's getting an education so she can help the economy by becoming a healthy, tax-paying citizen.
Really, you just sound bitter because someone might help her.
