Tila Tequila Started a GoFundMe Page For a New Home. Gets Blasted By Everyone
Jan 20, 2016 14:02
Tila Tequila had the audacity to create a GoFundMe page to raise money from her fans for a new home along with some furniture. She's still a model and actress, albeit, a less successful one. She decided to create the page to get help from fans because of the rising rent of her current home.
She says, "This is for my daughter so we won't be homeless and she won't starve."
The page had an initial goal of $2,500, but has since raised double that amount. Probably people who think she might send them a nude text?
She wrote on the page:
“The reason why I am creating this GoFundMe campaign is because they have raised the rent at my old home to $4,500 a month, and being a single mother without any support from the father, it can sometimes be very tough taking care of 2 people with only a 1 person income. So right now I need to raise some money so that I can move into my new home and get it furnished for my daughter and I. The last apt I was at came fully furnished and that’s why it was so expensive, but I’d rather save money for my daughter than keep wasting money each month like that. So I basically need to buy all the furniture and beddings from scratch to start over if we are to move. It is going to cost a lot to start off, and that is why I am asking you all for your help!
“I have zero pride or ego when it comes to taking care of my daughter because this is what real good mother’s [sic] do. We sacrifice for our children and would take care of them by any means possible. Even if that means being a celebrity, and creating a GoFundMe campaign to get hep [sic] from my fans. Most people would be so ashamed or embarrassed, but I’m not. This is for my daughter so we won’t be homeless and she won’t starve. It’s not easy raising a child alone, but I am doing the best that I can to give her the world, and beyond! Thank you so much for listening, and thank you so much for your help! As soon as we hit this goal I will give everyone a live tour of our new home and the beautiful furniture and beddings!”
Tila updated her page thanking her fans:
“There was so much hatred thrown at me, especially on here, for trying to find ways to help my daughter and I. I was about to lose hope and faith in humanity again after reading some of the horrid comments, but I felt in my heart that GOD led me here, and to believe that LOVE CONQUERS ALL!”
And that she'll give a lap dance personal call to each donor.
“I will give everyone who donated to our cause a personal phone call, as I promised, as soon as I return from filming in Las Vegas so that I have more time to sit down, and give each person a call as that is hard to do while I am traveling, and at work.”
Of course, something like that would draw the ire of the crowds.
If you really want to fund someone, or anything, look for a cause that could be more deserving than this.

While thoughtful gestures are always appreciated by a friend or loved one in need, it can be difficult to know what to give someone who has cancer, and many people get it wrong. The go-to gift is usually flowers for most hospital patients, but they never last more than a few days and usually require at least some maintenance. Flowers have also been banned from most medical facilities because of patient allergies, so they’re not always the most practical gift. Read more
