It was only last month that it was shockingly revealed that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star Mama June Shannon was allegedly dating ex Mark McDaniel, who had recently been released from prison after being convicted of molesting June’s oldest daughter, Anna, when she was only eight years old.
Since that time, TLC has canceled the show, with Anna later stating that Mama June had spent her trust fund money to buy a vehicle for McDaniel. The sudden implosion of the show and Mama June’s alleged mismanagement of Anna’s trust fund has left the 20-year-old mother of one in financial dire straits, and as a result she has launched a $20,000 FundMe fundraising campaign so people can donate and help her family after some of her fans suggested she do so.
“Here yall go,” Anna wrote on Facebook along with a link. “I just made it,” she added, “going to see what will happen.”
Here is the description of the campaign from Anna:
Anna for here comes honey boo boo and Im not that famous yall donate if yall want it’s fine and I’m not begging I’m asking but plz be nice and donate what ever yall what and it would help us out alot:))))))
Yall don’t have to but this is to help my family get one our own and get possible things we need I woby be doing this if it wasn’t for my mom but donate if you want it’s yall choose thanks yall:))))))
When some commenters suggested that the amount might be a little high, Anna explained, “I know it’s alot,” adding, “I’m not looking for that much I just made I price up.”
Another commenter asked about the specific expenses Anna was needing help with, and she explained, “I got phone bill and I’m trying to get [daughter] Kaitlyn last Christmas present and I want to save up for a house so me and [husband] Michael can get out on our own.”
Anna had previously hinted that she might write a book. “I’m think about just typing my tell all and give or just sell it to everyone one so they all can know and what I been through on life,” she revealed on Facebook.
UPDATE – It seems Anna’s fundraiser was not a very popular idea among her fans. She has since deleted the FundMe page and explained why on Facebook:
I’m deleting my fund me cause everyone thinks I’m money hungry so I’m deleting it and sorry for the people who donated no fan give me money or anything its fine sorry for asking yall sorry
