CHICAGO, Dec. 20, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- With the holidays fast approaching, many people are doing their shopping online – but the Internet is also a very popular place for people in need asking for a handout on Begslist.org.
There are thousands of pleas for help on Begslist.org, an online donation website, which is dedicated to helping people in need through begging via the Internet. Most of us this year will be enjoying a wonderful holiday dinner with our friends and family, but for millions of families across the country, Christmas will be like any other day; a struggle to make ends meet.
The stories from people asking for help are heartbreaking. A recently widowed dad who lost his job; a failed businessman with no money and no hope for a future. And, of course, stories of so many families who can't afford gifts for Christmas.
"We are a family of 9, and my husband lost his job, so we didn't have Christmas last year. This year we were lucky enough to find a place to live, but no money for Christmas..."
"I am a single mother of six and I am seeking help to have a Christmas with my family. I have been laid off from work and I experienced as a child not having many Christmases, but I don't want that for my kids..."
Others post stories asking for help, not for themselves but for others in need. Charities, organizations or everyday people just wanting donations for various causes will try begging on Begslist.org to help others.
"Help the Children of Chicago - My deepest wishes for the spirit of Christ and Christmas. Can you help the needy children this season with a small donation, any amount.. because it the thought that counts. It's better to give than to receive as our children are the future and needy families need help."
"This is a Memorial to my brother who died of Cancer in 2006. We wish to aid in the support of Community Hospice groups everywhere. Hospice is currently undergoing a financial hard time and needs our help. Hospice does a job that really helps. Take it from one who knows what they do. During my brother's final time, they provided many services that we the family could not."

Cyber begging, Internet begging, or Internet panhandling is the online version of traditional begging or panhandling where people can ask strangers for money, food, clothing, or shelter. Begging online has a clear advantage to street begging or panhandling where it can be done with relative anonymity, thus eliminating or reducing the embarrassment, shame, or keeping one's dignity that associated with begging in public. Begslist.org is a free way to ask for donations online, maintain privacy, and protect one's pride when begging for help.
Since 2007, Begslist.org has tried to keep the reputation of establishing itself as free cyber begging website that allows access to anyone who needs help as compared to a paid cyber begging (pay-to-post) website by offering users FREE postings to ask for help.
