So, hypothetical scenario. An event happens in one of your friend's life, that puts a financial strain on them (divorce, disease, death in the family, etc). They are in need of money to deal with this situation. Now-a-days, it seems like tons of people set up GoFundMe to get friends to contribute to help them out of their dire straits. However, you know that this friend has a rather sizable collection, with a few $500+ games in it, that could easily be sold for cash to help them deal with their situation.
Would you expect them to sell their collection before they started a beg-a-thon style page? Or would you think its OK to keep the games, while asking others to contribute?
I would expect them to do what works for them. Each persons/families financial situation is the concern of themselves and no one elses. Sorry, as someone who recently did a gofundme for my wife's battle with cancer, this hits a nerve.
