Actress Alyssa Milano responded to criticism over using GoFundMe to raise money for her son’s baseball team, stating that she, like other parents, raises funds for sports teams.

She defended her actions, mentioning she couldn’t afford the entire cost and anticipated criticism regardless.

Milano said, “Every parent raises money for their child’s sports teams and many of them do so through GoFundMe. I am no different.”

“As much as I’d love to pay for the entire team and their families for travel, transportation, hotel, food and beverage, uniforms, trading pins and all the things teams do for this kind of trip—I can not afford to do so. Maybe someday,” she continued.

Milano wrote, “Also, if I did pay for everyone—my trolls would find something else to be hurtful about.”

“Regardless of how you feel about me, going on to my hardworking 12 year old son’s Instagram page and leaving these kinds of messages is so horrid. Leave the kids alone. Let them play baseball. If you are against donating—don’t donate. If you’d like to donate to help the team’s families — we appreciate it—the link is in his bio,” added the actress.

Milano addressed negative comments and shared her son’s response to detractors.

Milano later posted, “I’m getting media inquiries about whether I have financially contributed to my son’s baseball team. I’ve paid for uniforms for the entire team and coaches, thrown bday parties and sponsor any kid who can’t afford monthly dues.”

“The kids also do fundraising themselves—car washes, movie nights, and many other fun things! Thank you to all who have contributed to the gofundme! You’ve made things easier for these boys and their families,” she added.

She clarified that she had already financially supported the team and highlighted their own fundraising efforts.
