Woman Spends Life Savings on Powerball Tickets, Starts GoFundMe to Get Her Money Back

After blowing her savings on lottery tickets in the hopes of winning the $1.6 billion Powerball, one woman reportedly turned to crowdfunding to get back her lost money. The GoFundMe page has since been taken down, but not before people donated at least $800 to her cause.

The woman, identified as Cinnamon Nicole from Tennessee wrote on the page:

“Please help me and my family as we have exhausted all of our funds. We spent all of our money on lottery tickets (expect to win the 1.5 billion) and are now in dire need of cash. With your small donation of at least $1.00, a like, and one share, I’m certain that we will be able to pick ourselves up from the trenches of this lost and spend another fortune trying to hit it big again! PLEASE, won’t you help a family in need. DONATE NOW.”

To entice anyone on the fence about making a donation, she promises to make you her #MCM or #WCW.

It’s not clear exactly why the page has since been removed, but it did reportedly receive backlash in the comments of the campaign.
