The Begging Business

It amazes me how many well off people are well off as their business is based on a picture given out on being poor. It is called begging and very successful it is for many who practice this. It is a viable business like any other business if you can live with the conscience.

Of course you may well be poor and beg on that basis, but then it you have a PC or laptop and Internet connection I think that could really be considered a a material good and poverty doesn’t even come into the equation. So anyone who begs online really isn’t really in need of emergency funds from begging.

Having just said that begging online is a bit of hypocritical it does go on and some make a living out of it. Asking for donations money online even in the form a ’Buy me a beer’ is technically begging. Money for nothing, you don’t have to write a ‘Sob, Sob’, story for getting donations sent to you and thousands do.

What kind of person gives to these begging tactics? Well anyone who has a soft heart and there are thousands of these types of people all over the world. This leads to the question - Can I make money out of begging online? The answer is a simple yes, if you can deal with a little guilt. |No guarantees on the funds you can get here though, but another drop in the ocean of online money making that all adds up at the end of the day.
