Rich people giving away money online is not a myth, it’s actually true. There are hundreds and thousands of rich people who help other people in need all over the world by donating money through sites like Just Giving and even PayPal. If you've got a legitimate need then you will get help from rich ordinary people. In this guide we look at the steps involved if you’re considering asking rich people for money online. As always it’s important to keep your expectations in check, the online requests for money could take months before you see any donation, there is also no guarantee whether you’ll get any money.
#1: Join Cyber Begging Sites
One of the best ways to ask rich and ordinary people for money online is through cyber begging sites. Cyber Begging sites allow ordinary people to publish their hardship online so that other people can read about the hardship and donate money. Two of the best cyber begging sites include Beglist.Org and Freebeg.com; you can post your hardship online for free and then wait for people to donate via PayPal.
If you have a genuine hardship then you've got a better chance of making money, hardships that people like to donate to include disaster recovery, medical bills, poverty, homelessness, repossessions, abuse and financial despair. If you’re experiencing one of these hardships then it’s worth taking the time to post a hardship online.
#2: Post a Hardship Online
When you post your hardship online take your time and try to describe your problems clearly and effectively, welcome any donation whether they are large or small and then ask people to forward the hardship page to their friends. Finish the post by explaining how much of a difference the donation would make and thank them for their time. Write as many drafts as you need to until you've got the perfect hardship post that you want to share with the world. Another important point to bear in mind is that anything you write must be true and accurate, it’s actually a crime to deceive rich people to give money.
#3: Share Your Hardship Page
Once you've perfected your online post you need to share it with as many people as you can, share it with your friends, colleagues, acquaintances and people you know, ask them to share it with other people they know as this will reach a wider audience. You can also send the page to charitable foundations, charities, churches, millionaires, billionaires, celebrities and even corporate philanthropy teams. The more people you send your page to the more help you are likely to get.
#4: Send Your Hardship Page to Rich People
If you want to share your post with rich people then you could get a list of some of the richest people in the world from three great philanthropy sites, (1) The Forbes Philanthropy List, (2) The Business Week Rich list, and (3) The Giving Pledge. All these lists combined will give you over one hundred of the richest philanthropists in the world. If you can take your research one step further and get the email details of the charitable foundation that they run you could send them a link to your hardship page.
