At the amazing website you can make donations to an anonymous woman ("My name is Penny" is the identification given) claiming to be caught in a bad relationship. It may be true it may not - what's interesting is that this new approach for getting cash out of complete strangers appears to be working, and that it uses e-cash. Convenient and confrontation-free. Begging has never been less humiliating.

This is a trend, at least according to wired

I read the whole site, and ended up liking this woman so much that I donated $50. This isn't begging on her part. It's not like the people on the freeway exits with the cardboard signs, where you have to decide whether to look at them or avoid eye contact.
