So I have a discussion for everyone. How do you cope and what do you say when people are mean when you are doing a fundraiser? I posted for a fundraiser for my son. He didn’t ask me too and he needs the help to get the dental care he needs before it causes more health issues however there is a certain person I know that is going to go off on me how he should just work for it. I get that. My son works very hard at his job and has been looking for a second job but with his social awkwardness and his underlying autism it is hard for anyone to look past his issues during the interview process to understand that he maybe be different but is smart and works very hard in anything does. It was able to pick up some more hours at his part time job since school is out but unfortunately he still would take a long time to save up to get his dental work done so I put up this fundraiser. But I know the harassment I am going to get for trying to help him out with this fundraiser.
Does anyone have helpful advise on how to deal with the bullies or people you know that shame you for fundraising?
Is there a certain thing to say or do to quiet down the judgement?
