Not Fraud Just Stupid

This Young Lady Started a GoFundMe For a 21st Birthday Party and It Isn’t Going Well

21st birthday GoFundMe

You’d think given the fact that the campaign has been shared 221 times on Facebook this young lady would have at least a $5 donation but nah. This is one of those cases where people are simply pointing and laughing.

Meet Eliza Briskey. Eliza is from Wisconsin and she’s going to be 21 soon.

She writes:

My first twenty-first birthday has to be memorable. I am a young woman in Wisconsin, and I cannot let my hometown down. Being a lowly sales rep at Spencer’s Gifts will not allot me the funds necessary to become properly intoxicated. I implore you for your monetary assistance. Please, help me in making this an event I will never remember. Thank you, and God bless America.

Huh? Your first 21st birthday? How many times do you plan on turning 21?

Anyway, she is asking for a modest $200 which is fair, but she hasn’t gotten a dime. What she has gotten is a hailstorm of hate in the comment section of her GoFundMe.

She does have the option to turn comments off, but instead is allowing a bunch of emboldened keyboard sadists to ruin her day. “Honestly, the comments on my GoFundMe makes me cry. I’m not actually serious about it. I can’t believe people think so little of me,” she wrote on Facebook. Turn ’em off, boo.

    Personally, I’m quite impressed that you pass your days writing simple one-sided “articles” based largely off Facebook posts. How do you get to be so awesome and lofty sitting on your golden throne, knowing the ins and out of every situation you skim on the internet? I’ve spent my life working at writing things that make a difference, hoping to make a change and see some good come out of the world. People like you are why “journalists” are regarded so lowly these days. You’re nothing more than a glorified troll, “emboldened” by the anonymity of your own worthlessly niche website.

      I actually happen to know this woman in real life. She is quite honestly one of the worst, most egoist people I’ve ever met, and she does not have the mental capacity understand why. Everything she does, says, or thinks is entirely within her self-interest and she has little disregard for the people around her unless it somehow, in any capacity at all, strokes and inflates her own self-obsession, and if anyone dare speak against her, she is the victim, in her mind, and there is no way to change that. I want to personally and wholeheartedly thank the individual responsible for writing this article as I pray it sheds light on this woman and hopefully she’ll change for the better. She’s almost 21 and she has gone nowhere in life.

        I know her personally and she’s nothing like this ? this entire gofundme page was a joke. Clearly you don’t know her well enough.

        Your sir…and I use that loosely…are the jerk. Eliza is a beautiful person and she does everything possible to make her life better. She’s been handed a bad hand and she pulls her self up every time. My daughter is one of her best friend’s and I don’t appreciate people giving her a hard time. She’s pretty much taken care of herself and has a big heart. So I think you better check yourself and your ego issues before you dog my other daughter!!!

    If this is a joke (I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and say it is), what on earth did she expect? If she’s joking, then I assume she’s making fun of people who are actually that self-absorbed and entitled… so what does she expect when she shows herself as that type of person to the entire world? Most people don’t know her and would never know it was a joke. Everyone else is going to assume it’s real and treat it as such. She should have expected this reaction. Maybe not to this scale, but still. I have no idea who she is or what kind of person she is, but if I were to judge purely off this, I’d think she was… a lot of words I’d rather not say, too.

    Also, I’m still stuck on first 21st birthday… what?
