Well hell, if I would’ve known that Dave only costed $35k, then I would’ve started saving up years ago.
We’ve seen it all at this point. Remember the chick that needed $100k because she spent all her money on lottery tickets? (Here it is, if you don’t.) Somehow I’ve even stumbled across “Help me get a boob job” and “Help me throw money at strippers” accounts. Don’t ask how I found them.
Here’s one I think we can all appreciate. This dude from Abeline, TX launched a GoFundMe page hoping to “buy Dave Grohl.” A $35,000 goal is all. If only it were that easy. And people actually freaking donated!!
He stated on his page:
In short, I did this as a joke – merely to distract everyone from all the divisiveness that’s rampant on social media.
I never thought anyone would donate to this.
Now that you have, I assure you, I won’t keep the money for beer.
As Dave Grohl would do, I’d like to do some good with your donations and give all the proceeds to Autism Speaks.
If you only donated to help me meet Dave (or for beer money) and would like to keep your funds, then I have no problem with that. No one will think any less of you.
Like I said, I’m surprised anyone donated.
If you’d like to continue helping me get Dave’s attention, while helping out Autism Speaks, then I thank you very much.
Dave, if you see this, give me a shout.
So…at least it’s for a good cause?
