Begslist has tried to keep the reputation of establishing for (Since 2007) an itself as free cyber begging website that allows access to anyone who needs help as compared to a paid cyberbegging (pay-to-post) website by offering users FREE postings to ask for help. |
If you need beg for money post an appeal and the generous will be able to browse and search and respond to you directly. Donors will be able to give with their credit card or through PayPal. Those asking for donations can get identity verification through Begslist to inspire confidence in their pleas.
Reality Charity will be a for profit site, though its revenue will come in the form of advertising and through larger groups looking to raise money. Money won’t be taken from donors or individual recipients.
Something tells me I’m not alone in thinking this is going to bring out everyone with the ability to spin a sob story and turn it into a request for money. You’d hope most people would be honest. You’d also hope most would do a little bit of research before giving money directly to someone. Is it realistic to think that either will always be the case?
Pick a tragedy that a large number of people have likely experienced in some way. Tell them how you’re currently undergoing the same tragedy and you’ll hit an emotional chord with those people. Some of whom will give as a way to heal their own pain or in the honest attempt to help someone else avoid some of that pain.
There’s nothing wrong with giving and there’s nothing wrong with asking for help when you need it. People do suffer financial crisis through no fault of their own and sometimes need assistance to get out from under the situation. Charity and community can both be very good things. But without any real verification the site could be launching one scam after another.
I want to believe this will be something good and the site will end up helping many people in need. I really do. I’m also sure there will be many happy stories to come out of the site. Something tells me though, that we may end up hearing more stories of people giving to what they thought was someone in need only to find out later that need either never existed or was over dramatized to tug on people’s heart strings.
But if you do need money to pay off some debt now you have a site to legitimize your cyber begging.
