Alyssa Milano asking for donations to son's baseball team

[ Edited ]

Why the heck is she asking for donations??  

 

Actress Alyssa Milano is responding after angering fans on social media by asking if they could donate to her son's baseball team.

 

"My son's baseball team is raising money for their Cooperstown trip," Milano wrote on X Thursday. "Any amount would be so greatly appreciated." She also shared more information on how to access the GoFundMe page.

 

Many were left wondering "why isn't Alyssa Milano paying for the trip for the whole team herself," while others were questioning why the actress is "asking for money from people who can barely buy groceries."

 

"Just a reminder: Alyssa Milano and her husband are both multi-millionaires," another commented. "They could pay for the entire trip for the whole team without batting an eye!"

That is so strange!

It ruffles my feathers whenever celebrities ask the public for donations. Some people feel they know these people just because they're cute on movies or TV and they want them to love them. This is ridiculous for her to ask for donations for anything but I bet she's got some takers. Sad. I think those GoFundMe requests are silly.

I can't imagine that the goal of $10,000 couldn't be entirely funded by her with no problem. 

 

Monthly residuals from "Charmed" alone should cover that easily.

 

I'm sure families of some team members can't afford the trip, but traditionally car washes and bake sales and such are used.  But having one of the celebrity mothers solicit on social media?.....

Re: Alyssa Milano asking for donations to son's baseball team

whether she can afford it or not the "optics" are not good 

perhaps the thought was that a celeb would bring more attention to the trip

 

however, if they can't raise the money it's a life lesson you can't expect that others will fund your life
