    If pretty, just ask how much for your wife and your daughters. (And, have the money to pay!).

    The best way I have found to persuade people to give me money is to sell my skill sets, experience, work ethic, and labor to somebody who needs it and is willing to pay me for it. . . .or. . . .

    Write an irrisistible grant application if you have a good cause that needs funding. . . .or. . . .

    Be a very persuasive salesperson for whatever charity you are fund raising for.

    I've done a fair amount of persuading over the years.
    I just show folks a bunch of figures, justify the proposed expenditures, tell them what to expect in return, and educate them as to the risk involved.
    No big deal really.

    This time of year... by dressing as an elf and carrying a bucket, and having my 'licensed charity collector' ID on. Then I smile, explain that I'm collecting for local needy families. This usually works. If not, I follow them, wait until no one's looking and beat the shit out of them and steal their money.

    Sounds a lot easier and more profitable than my method.
    I'll give it a shot.
