What is CyberBegging All About?
Imagine needing money to pay bills and people you never met will donate money to you. For anyone who think it can’t happen, think again. In today’s internet-connected world, plenty of people are doing just that. Cyberbegging, which involves having a webpage telling the world an individual’s story, is fast becoming the most popular way to obtain needed funds.
The best part is people get to keep all the money donated to them, and they can remain completely anonymous if they so choose.
Internet begging, which has been featured on various national newscasts such as Huffington Post and CNN as well as the Oprah Winfrey show, is much easier than many people may think. The process begins by signing up with a company such us that provides a webpage and other services that will help a person get their story out to millions of people on the internet.
Many companies charge a small one-time set-up fee and then a monthly fee to maintain the webpage, letting all the donations go directly to the person. While many people think it makes more sense to just create a website and start asking for money, it’s not that easy. Most sites do not offer the services needed to get the word out around the world, and they usually have so many stories listed on them that it’s too easy for a great story to get lost in the mix. Therefore, it’s better to work with experts that understand what it takes to get found on Google or other search engines.
While it’s possible to raise thousands of dollars, most companies always caution those asking for money to be patient and give their story time to reach the masses. People using e-begging have gotten donations ranging from one cent to $1000 or more, depending upon who’s reading the story. While most donations are relatively small, over time they can add up to quite a bit of money that can help with various problems.
Many people use e-begging to help get themselves out of debt. Credit card bills, medical bills, automotive repairs and more are just some of the reasons people go on the web to ask for money. Many individuals may find themselves unemployed and struggling to buy groceries or other essential items, so telling their story can also result in donations. The great thing about internet panhandling is it can be done to benefit anyone or anything, within reason of course. Some people choose to ask for donations to help send their kids to college, or to help defray medical expenses for a family pet that needs expensive surgery. Whatever a person may need money for, it’s possible to get it.
Of course, e-begging is not limited to individuals. Many organizations big and small use these sites to ask for donations, telling their stories to everyone who will read them. For most individuals or groups who ask for money, donations are made to a PayPal account. Checks and money orders can also be accepted, but a physical address must be used to receive these. With more than 100 million members worldwide, PayPal is seen as the best choice for accepting donations. To maintain privacy, it’s also best to not list a home address, email address or phone number on the donation page. None of this information is needed to accept donations, so it makes sense to keep this information private.
While some people think that internet panhandling may make them sound poor, it’s really no different than many other situations where people ask for money. For example, all political candidates ask for donations to fund their campaigns. Organizations such as the Salvation Army, American Red Cross and many other well-known groups have websites where donations are gladly accepted. Just like these groups and their websites, creativity can go a long way in convincing people to give money. People who are willing to share their thoughts, feelings and goals are often the ones who receive the most money, so being shy will do little to help people or organizations get the money they need.
While results vary from one person to another, some of the success stories are truly amazing. One woman was looking to raise enough money to put herself through nursing school, but that was not the whole story. She was also in an abusive marriage, and wanted to better her life by becoming a nurse and having the means to leave her husband. Another person, a single mother with three children, found herself with more than $40,000 in debt after the sudden death of her husband. Faced with financial ruin, she decided to try cyber begging as a last resort for her and her children. After reading her story, donations poured in and not only erased the debt, but also gave the family enough money to get back on their feet. With stories such as these, it’s easy to see the possibilities that exist with online panhandling.
The fact is there are many people around the world that have money to donate and spend part of their time actively seeking people or organizations that are in need of funds. This is what makes the concept of online fundraising so intriguing. With millions of people connected to the internet, it’s very possible to put a story online and discover there are many people eager to help. Many people actually prefer to give their money to individuals rather than large groups, for fear their money will not be used for the purposes they desire. By donating to individuals, they know their money will go straight to the person needing it and will offer immediate help. So for those people or organizations in need of financial help, internet fundruising offers the chance to put their story out there to the world and let good people come to their aid.
