New York, Feb 5 (ANI): As the world continues to fight financial crisis, a new website has come forward to help recession-hit people by giving out 50,000 dollars a day to those in need.

Hundreds of people braved the chilly weather in New York and spent hours in line near Times Square hoping for a generous handout from Bailout Bill booth.

While the gesture was a publicity stunt for Bailoutbooth.com, a new video classifieds site, the recipients were happy to tell tales of their financial woes for cash, reports the New York Daily News.

All they had to do was speak up their heart-wrenching stories about layoffs, illnesses and general bad luck and Bill decided how much they deserved.

While most people got 50 dollars or 100 dollars, a lucky few got up to 3,000 dollars for a total of 50,000 dollars each day. (ANI)
