eBeggars is a platform created for individuals that would like to raise money for themselves or a specific cause. Ebeggars gives individuals an easy way to ask other members of the community for financial assistance while keeping pride intact.
Users sign up for a free membership to begin posting unique and compelling stories or causes for donations. If fellow users find the story intriguing and genuine enough, they can make donations. If users want to donate to a cause, they simply click “Donate $1” or “Donate $5” to process payments via PayPal.
Website users also have the ability to vote on causes without making donations. If an entry seems like it warrants sympathy, support or a donation, users can click on the thumbs up button. Those that are not convincing enough may receive a thumbs down vote.
eBeggars does not take a commission or charge members fees. All posts, payment processes and usage on the site is free. Donations are sent directly to the recipient’s PayPal account.
eBeggars was developed as a clone of textsfromlastnight.com and mylife.com to collect user generated content. This site was created on the Wordpress platform with a number of plugins.
