Can you ask friends and family for money to help send your mom to New York for her 60th birthday after your dad got laid off and now she can't go?

Collecting for Vacation
by: Ms P Etiquette

Hello Ashley,

If you are asking me if this is appropriate practical etiquette, the answer is could be or not be appropriate. Only you know if the family and friends you approach feel so strongly about your mother and her 60th birthday that they are happy to help out. If you have any doubts about a person's feeling toward this request, do not ask. It is always poor manners to place others in uncomfortable, and possibly embarrassing, situations. You mother has a caring daughter but you must make certain those you ask care as you do.
