    Re: Please help me with punctuation

    Just for openers, ALL sentences must end with a punctuation mark - usually a period. No exceptions.

    And all sentences must start with a capital letter. No exceptions.

    And - beggar? That's a poor word choice. It makes no sense. Beggars ask for donations, they don't make them. And everyone who asks for donations isn't a beggar.

    And - the singular of women is woman.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
