Cyber begging question

Have you seen those sites where people basically ask others for money? What do you think of those sites, do you really think anyone ever gives money to people there or is this just another way someone has found to exploit those who have come to their last thread of hope and are just asking strangers for money to pay bills. I'm not meaning the ones on there that are just asking for money to have fun. But the ones who really seem to need money because of circumstances in their life, also someone does not have to own a computer or even have internet access at home,. they could be going to a friends house to use the internet or they could be using a computer at a library or something. Also how about you would you ever donate money to someone who asked you for money, why or why not, what would make the difference?

No, I would not simply donate money. There are many people in that situation and they actually do something to earn it. Whether it's a donate button on their blog or a service they provide. Do you have any money you want to give away? Is that why you are asking? LOL! My hands are out if you are. LOL!!!

I need to have a blog set up to take donations lol. No, I really do not have any money but I was remembering a news article I read a while back about someone who convinced a whole lot of people to give her a dollar or two, and she ended up with quite a bit of money, and no one who gave her money was really out much money at all. I mean if you could ask a million people for a dollar and they all gave you a dollar then you would be a millionaire, and you would not of really asked a lot from any one person. Anyway, sometimes I wonder if something like that would work because of the fact we have so many bills due now, and no income to speak of and are fixing to not have any savings at all. and when that happens which will likely be soon, we will be on the street, hopefully we will be able to get some real income before that happens but we have a very short time to do that because I only have enough to pay the rent one last time. Anyway maybe something will work out or maybe I will figure out how to sell all the things that are cluttering up my house and taking up space. But even that will only help a tiny bit. It is best to never get sick because when you do you end up with lots and lots of bills that are very difficult to pay especially when there is no money coming in.

All very very true. You may want to look into cash gifting. You can get into the small matrices for as little as one dollar. The hope is that you can find some people to donate you $1 and then they find people to donate them one dollar. After all, it's only $1 that you are losing if you join.
