You may or may not have been following all the fuss over a recent controversial GoFundMe campaign that sparked a lot of outcry. You can read all about it here. This mum decided if it was good enough for Israel Folau then it was good enough for her too!
Mum of three and blogger at Rock Star Mums Drink Champagne, Fiona, decided she too deserved some funds and her hilarious post to raise money for her booze fund has attracted quite the attention.

“Hey, if it’s good enough for Israel Folau, it’s good enough for me.
After much deliberation, I’ve decided to set up a Go Fund Me page for my ’Parenting Booze Fund’.
You see, I have a mortgage, 3 kids, a hubster and a dog called Norman who all occasionally shit me to absolute tears so I need wine…and lots of it.
And provided by you please.
I’ve decided that even though I can afford my own in bulk, (onya Dan Murphy’s), I’d still like you to pay for it.
You see, in the bible, Jesus is said to have passed around bread and wine at the last supper so ummmm….yeah, it’s completely justified. Give it to me baby (aha ah haa). It’s not as if I’m going the whole hog and asking for the bread as well (carbs make me pop-off like a bastard) I’m just after free wine.
So instead of sending money to all those poor deserving children in dire need of funds for life-saving measures, do the right thing and go fund me.
Please help support me in my slapperish quest to get as much free booze as possible
***THE DONATE BUTTON IS NOT FOR ME!! IT’S FOR Share the Dignity, A CAUSE WORTH GIVING MONEY TO!***
NB: for the love of Chr#$t, don’t think I’m serious. If you want to do something decent with your money, go and support an actual worthy cause on Go Fund Me.”
Fiona’s post has attracted over 7300 reactions, 1400 shares and hundreds of comments.
She has also managed to raise over $1400 for the charity Share the Dignity since adding a donation button to her post.
Love it! See how one cheeky “tongue in cheek” post actually raised some money for a worthwhile cause. Amazing!
