Why is it that EVERY WEEKEND there is a group setting outside of Wal-Mart taking donations for something it never fails you go to the store and get confronted on the way in and the way out it drives me crazy and my biggest problem with this is most of these groups are not heard of any other place theres no other info on them makes me want to come up with a bogus organazation to collect money (NOT REALLY) I couldnt do that but sometimes I seriously wonder if thats what some of these people are doing maybe we should think before handing them money. DONT GET ME WRONG if its a legit group on occasion but EVERY WEEKEND thats a little much.

Groups choose locations such as Walmart, because of the heavy flow of customers. If they are a legit group, what better place to try and raise funds for their cause.
Groups who have fundraising events most likely need permission from the place of business they want to set up in front of...I know it is required at Walmart. They must verify their group, so I wouldn't worry that they are not can just say "No thank you" if approached by them if you have no interest in donating. Have a great day :)

Cause many of these groups depend on your support not the goverments to get by - if you dont want to support them tell them no thanks and keep walking - Most of you think its okay for me to use my tax money to buy you something so what the difference - at least they are polite enough to ask and say thank you
