we all start with nothing, but begging or asking for credits and/or items isn't going to get you far.
You make credits by doing your dailies (NPC and music playing). Now I personally can't play pirates or fireworks worth anything, but I am bad at mansion, but I still make credits. Even if only make 200 credits a game (which is only collecting 20 ghosts) and play 15 games a day, within 10 day-3000 credits a dayx 10 days gives ya 30,000 credits.
Now also you can play jungle cruise. It only pays 20 credits, I think that's all, but anyway that's your way to make credits other than sellings your items.
