AKRON, OH (KTLA) -- A bikini-clad woman is panhandling for change, but it's not for food or shelter. She says she needs the cash for breast augmentation surgery.

Chrissy Lance is trying to raise $5,000 for the procedure. She's staked out a busy street corner in Akron and has been holding up a sign that reads, “Not homeless. Need boobs.”

The brunette told a local TV station that she was inspired by other beggars and made sure to get the required panhandling license from the city.

“I see people panhandling every day, so why not panhandle for boobs,” said Lance, 37, who lives in Rittman, Ohio.

“It’s original. I’ve never seen anybody do it.”

A single mom and college student, Lance said the money she makes as a barmaid pays the bills, but it’s not enough to pay for implants.

She said the implants would help improve her "self-esteem.”

So far, Lance has collected lots of catcalls and wolf whistles, but only about 90 bucks.
