I have seen so many gofundme links pop up lately and some of them are rightfully so, but some I think are bullshit. For instance a guy from my town passed left a family of three kids someone started a gofundme page, which is fine, because no life insurance policy will ever cover the costs of raising a family. Then a friend shared another gofundme page for someone from his state, that read for funeral expenses and then they increased it to cover legal expenses to close out the estate for $35K, it only costs about $5K for a funeral.
I am sorry I just have to rant about this, because I pay $21.66 a month to have life insurance to cover any costs if I die and not put the impact on my family. My mom and stepdad do not have life insurance, because they let the policy slip and it would be to costly for them to get life insurance because they are smokers. I know when anything happens to them I will be paying those costs or if they have savings they will. I will not be asking for handouts. Part of me just feels like I should stop paying $21.66 a month and hope they do a gofundme page if anything happens.
Let me know your thoughts.
