Enable Anonymous Users to Add New List Items in SharePoint

Problem: Add items greyed out for Anonymous access users. We got to enable anonymous users to add  list Items in a SharePoint list.

Solution: By default, Add/Edit/Edit access is disabled for anonymous users. They are granted only with "Read" access. But for a "Contact Us / Feedback" list in our public SharePoint site, we had to enable anonymous user to submit their questions and feedback (add new list items).
