Question of the day: Would you ask for your money back?

Here's the question - If you donate N1million to the family of a very ill person who needs urgent surgery (the money is to pay for the surgery) and a few hours after you make the transfer, you learn that the ill person has passed away, would you ask for your money back?

Since the money is meant for the ill person to undergo a surgical process of which later the person passed on without the operation; the best thing to do is to account for the money collected so far. Then inform those that donated the money for record purpose and remittances as the case may be as opinionated by individual to determine.

NO!! if i can afford to give out 1 million Naira, then i can afford to let that money go. That someone is able to give away that amount of money, it means the person can afford to live without it.

if the person died before the surgery then yes but,

if the person died after the surgery was performed...then still yes, money is not free in this world.

Of course I would collect my money. There's a reason why I gave them the money in the first place and since the person had died before they could use the money for what I inteded it should be used for then I shouldn't even have to ask before they offer to give me back. That's if I don't have plenty moni oh. But in the case where I have hundreds of millions, I would certainly not have to collect it back.
