Wikipedia defines Internet begging, cyber-begging, or Internet panhandling as the online version of traditional begging, asking strangers for money to meet immediate and other needs (money, food, and shelter). Internet begging has the clear advantage to street panhandling in that it can be practiced with relative anonymity, thereby eliminating or reducing the shame and disgrace apparent of begging in public.

Many people take begging not to be tolerated, but for some who want to be Good Samaritans, it is an opportunity to make an impact in bringing a positive impact on others' lives. Recently, there has been a high number of people depending on donations and begging daily to make ends meet.

Beggars

Beggars can simply visit numerous websites designed for raising money and get the opportunity to plea for help in the hopes that they will be heard and see a result of their online begging. You may have been made to feel that begging is a feeling of swallowing your pride and submitting to humiliation, but you can maintain your anonymity without having to look someone in the eyes like with begging in person face-to-face. Whether you need some money, food, clothing or any other type of donation to put your life back on track, then this online begging has the potential to help you with your problems. You should never shy away from seeking assistance anytime you are in a fix.

Donators

If you are not in need, then maybe you are ready to donate to the needy? Anytime you feel like you have extra money or goods to donate, you will find several online sites that allow you to donate to needy causes. Some may not be a necessary need, but a want, and if whatever they are requesting brings amusement or a smile to your face, you can decide if you want to give them a donation, even if it is just a dollar or two.
