Social Experiment

June 6th, 2006 at 05:45 pm

Ok,so now I am desperate. I have decided to try out this experiment. I know it will sound crazy but I am very interested to see how it works.

Here's my plan: I am going to ask everyone I meet to give (not loan) me one dollar. For those that do, I am going to take their name and enter their name along with why they gave me a dollar into my blog.

This should open some interesting dialogue. Would you give someone a dollar just because they asked for it? Would you want to know what they needed it for? Would you be willing to part with a dollar when you are trying to get yourself out of debt.

If asked why I need the dollar my response will be - that I am conducting a social experiment and seeing how willing people are to give a handout for no particular reason.

How important is that one dollar to you.

Ok, maybe being broke has made me lose me mind.

    In my experience, people just do say what they need money for when they ask me. I don't have to ask them. Strangers, friends and family alike. If someone told me that they were asking for money as a social experiment, no, I would not give it to them. There are lot of things I would give money for, but I would not do it just to participate in your experiement.

    I think it's a great idea. I've been doing the same things myself on www.pay-my-mortgage.com and I think it will work. Granted, my site is still a work in progress but it's atracting attention like yours. I say good luck to you (and by the way, if you had a donate button, I would have given you a dollar).

    Sorry about the typo in "attracting"! By the way, how much have you raised so far?
