I got lunch this week with an attorney friend who still works at the law firm I left last year. Her assistant was telling her about this awesome sports camp that her teenage daughter had been invited to participate in in a distant large city, but that it was going to cost $5,000, so she was going to start a GoFundMe to pay for it. The daughter is old enough to work but does not work. The assistant sent the link for the GoFundMe to all the attorneys in her practice group, basically asking all her bosses to donate money to pay for her kid's camp. Let alone the fact that this particular assistant is one of the best paid in the office and gets the highest bonuses each year (because she truly does an excellent job). So then, after the lunch, I went up to the office to visit my former co-workers, including this assistant, and she was telling me about the camp, too. Turns out that her daughter did this camp last year, but wants to do it again, so why not ask for the money? Um, okay. Seems so inappropriate to me to send a GoFundMe request to your co-workers, especially for something that's clearly a want.
