Because I could use a little vomiting to offset all the food I ate yesterday

I am so ashamed of all of you.

You selfish pigs, each and every one of you.

Think of all the times you wasted that money on things you didn't need. Yes, I'm talking to you, you coffee-buying, movie-going, dress-buying, trip-taking, inconsiderate, wasteful jerks -- when there's a child to be saved!!

You could have saved the life of a child.

But no, you chose to buy those unnecessary things.

I hope you're proud of yourselves.

20 complaints from ingrates:

Are these the "buy us a baby blogspot" people trying another route or are there two of them? Dear heavens.
But hey, if their campaign is successful, just THINK how many people that baby will have to be grateful to. "She" (because it's always a girl, you know) can write everyone who sacrificed just one starbucks a thank you note as soon as she's old enough to write.
And even better -- if their campaign is super-successful, agencies can increase the cost of adoptions, providing a much-needed boost to the industry!
Here ends the snark. But ugh.

I think they are different; the names are different.

And OMG abebech, you so nailed it. It IS always a girl, isn't it? I guess those unwanted boys can just go die already, right?

Yanno, fundraising I got no problem with, but this chick is posting her link multiple times in completely out of the way places under other guises (like, "Where can I go to fundraise for my adoption, I set this up, is there anything similar??")

You can't search on this site. You've got to have a direct link. It's not like other sites where everyone can see the fundraising.

But yeah, to answer your question. Now it appears there are two.

I should amend that, I wish I could edit comments, I meant to say appropriate types of fundraising, like if they were sending this to family (without the guilt trip) or something, but posting it under the guise of, Do you know any sites that I can do fundraising? is slimey.

abebech April 9, 2007 at 8:18 PM  

That's interesting. So you can either send people you know the link (chipin's intent) or stick the widget all over the place . . .
I'm not too keen on adoption fundraising that says "save a child" regardless of the form (the bakesale, the church letter) or anything all up on guilt, though I'm all for people who care about a couple contributing. Family gave us money for Christmas . . .
And I should add for fairness and transparency for other readers that one of ours is a girl. It just seems that in all these imaginary futures, there's a little girl. It irritates me because I think boys are pretty neat (I also have one of those).

I did my part. I bought myself some new panties I didn't need, and I bought myself some new coffee mugs. So I'm doing my part to make sure these slime buckets don't ever get a chance to buy their babies. Last time I checked most of the kids who really needed homes were living in foster care or group homes, those are the kids that feel unwanted. My bee was very wanted by her birthmom from the moment she found out she was pregnant with her.
So I did my part to make sure that I don't have any extra money to contribute to their cause.

I've seen a few of these. Some aren't asking for others to foot the whole bill, just a part of it.

I still think it's tacky.

And I am quite the selfish wench, you know. I am quite enamored with my peppermint mochas. Just think, if I didn't buy those mochas for one year (say one/week) -- I wonder how many other peoples' adoptions I could fund???

Heidi April 9, 2007 at 9:33 PM  

OK, I am now nauseous.

Lizard April 9, 2007 at 9:59 PM  

Well fuck THEM. They can't even afford to buy the kid a pony! What is adoption without a PONY!?

Anonymous,  April 9, 2007 at 10:11 PM  

Damn, now I gotta feel grateful for being saved? What pony? I didn't get a pony! Where can I fundraise for a pony?

Guess I oughta start a blog on here so I don't have to keep signing my name!

Ungrateful Little Bastard April 9, 2007 at 10:39 PM  

Jeanie what you can do is click the Other box, and then you can put your name and link to your blog there but first.. YOU ARE A GENIUS - I'm going to post about you in a second!!

Everyone else, I'm horribly disappointed in you all. don't talk to me, selfish people.

Doughnut April 9, 2007 at 11:25 PM  

I think I will stick with my coffee. Actually, I'd buy a soon to be mom a coffee too and talk with her about every option and resource available to keep her kid.

Possum April 10, 2007 at 2:23 AM  

Possum -> stamping madly

Ungrateful Little Bastard April 10, 2007 at 8:30 AM  

Possum I actually didn't get the pony. I got the horse but I had to wait until I was a teen to get him. But I did specifically ask for the rideable pony carriage set from F.A.O. Schwartz and berate my mother every chance I get for the emotional damage she did to me by not buying it for me. I don't care if it was $225 in 1969, I WANTED THE PONY AND CARRIAGE SET!

And Lee I can't think of better use of money you didn't need to spend.

You know what I'm going to do, and I need a whole lot LESS money?

I'm going to put up a site that says:

I NEED a laptop. "Please SAVE a laptop from a life of being unloved and unwanted," and then put one of those things up, guilt people with the other crap they buy, like coffee, movies, dinners at fancy restaurants, and see if I can get everyone else to foot the bill for a laptop for me. Because damnit, I want one. I mean, I NEED one!!

Ungrateful Little Bastard April 10, 2007 at 11:59 AM  

Haha why not? I mean honestly, that's what the site is for. It's nothing more than a hosted widget site so you can track paypal payments. I made one for BUY ME A MANICURE I DON'T NEED but then got afraid to post it here for fear some kind reader would actually send me money LOL

Please save a laptop. Buy one for Judy. Did you know laptops are put into the service of downloading horrific pornography every day? Thousands of laptops forced to witness unspeakable acts. If only you would use that money to buy a laptop for Judy, you can rest assured the laptop you save will be used only for the highest of purposes. Buy a laptop for Judy, please.

These comments are Hi-larious. A Pony? Oh my God. Can't. Stop. Laughing.

"Think of all the people SHE can be grateful to!" soooooo true.

I am not against fundraising either, but people, it can't be shameless fundraising.

It's not something that we personally feel comfortable with, just like we can't do Amway or the Phone Line Pyramid or anything else along those lines. Asking for money is dangerous.

This is just crazy.

OK, here we go:

Julie, Jeanie, and Possum never got a fucking pony and ended up bitter, angry adoptees. If you would forgo that $3.40 Starbucks coffee that you get, you greedy bastards, and put that money towards THREE LOUSY PONIES, you could save these ladies from a future of nothing but UGLY BITTERNESS. For the love of God and all that is holy, clicky clicky the box and donate some money to buy ponies for these ladies.
