A Man Tried To Crowdfund His Engagement Ring… The Internet Was Not Having It

Fort McMurray, AB, Canada / MIX 103.7

Crowdfunding like Gofundme can be a great tool to help companies start up or charities to reach certain goals but some people seem to not understand what it’s for.

A man named wanted to buy his wife an engagement ring for $15,000; he couldn’t afford it so he asked random strangers across the internet to foot the bill. Here’s his Gofundeme page


Now don’t get me wrong. I understand what he was trying to do. At the same time, you can’t expect thousands of people to just give you money so you can buy jewellery. If you can’t afford a $15,000 ring. Maybe don’t try to buy one that expensive.

So far he has only raised $594 so it looks like the internet agrees with me.

What do you think? Is this an okay thing to do? Let me know in the comments.
