Jerry Hall, who was famously in a relationship with Mick Jagger and infamously married to media mogul Rupert Murdoch, once said, "It's really important for children to have good morals and good manners, and that they're thoughtful of other people and that they learn the consequences of their actions."

In November 2021, CNN reported that Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty of "first-degree intentional homicide and four other felony charges" after shooting and killing two people. Since then, he's been on a real media tour, but apparently, it isn't paying much as his sister is now asking for money via an interestingly worded GoFundMe.

Kyle Rittenhouse's sister says her family is not doing well emotionally or financially.

Rittenhouse's sister Faith Rittenhouse took to GoFundMe to plead her family's case. They are in dire straights and are looking for money. "Our family has been through unimaginable hardships," she wrote, "and now we find ourselves on the brink of losing everything."

Things start off very strangely as Faith describes her brother's criminal entanglements as being "involved in a tragic shooting incident." That's one way of putting it. She goes on to say the "aftermath of this event uprooted our family's stability and left us grappling with grief, trauma, and the harsh reality of starting over." She then very kindly says they are not the only ones who suffered.

They are not just looking for money but empathy as well.

Beyond having difficulty finding a job, Faith has also suffered from some medical issues that have left her unable to work for several months. "We've fallen behind on rent, and now we're facing eviction with only eight days left in our apartment," she wrote. "The thought of losing our home, our sanctuary, in the midst of chaos, is overwhelming and terrifying." According to her, this is their last resort.

Any money donated will go toward keeping a roof over their heads and paying bills. Apart from this, she also asks that folks be kind and empathetic. "Please share our story, spread the word about our campaign, and help us reach as many compassionate souls as possible," asks Faith. She ends the GoFundMe with a heartfelt thank you.
