Just curious if anyone else has felt pressured by this religious griop that stands on both entrances of Wal-Mart? The other day, I was asked for money as I went into the store, and I gave, then on my way out I was asked again by the same individual. I said I already gave and that I had no more extra cash and the lady said "No worries, I can swipe your credit card on my i-phone." I thought this was very rude considering that I just gave to their need five minutes prior. Is this bothering anybody else. I think Wal-Mart officials should not allow this sort of harrasment towards there customers.

A vague name I never heard of before. Recognized neither the group or any of the people as has been the case several times lately. Hard to determine if they were some "regligous" group or some clause. Did try to give the impression like saying "God bless" and selling some items but were somewhat aggressive.
While on the subject, I am noting that some national groups sound like very good clauses but pass very little along to actual meeting the need. Like even less than 1/2 of 1 percent. A few groups, usually more local, use all of the collections for the clause. So one really neeeds to know who they are donating to and how they use the collections.

This type of soliciting needs to stop. It's ridiculous that you can't enter/exit Walmart, purchase food at McDonald's, or even check your mail without someone asking for donations. The majority of the population does well to support their own family. Saying no certainly is easier when you are repeatedly asked to donate on a daily basis.

Agree, I'm Sick Of Being Asked At Drive Thrus And Grocery Stores If I Want To "Donate."II've Done "Donated" A Few Thousand Dollars This Year To The IRS (Taken Out Of My Earnings Before I Ever Saw Them) And Part Of That's Supposed To Pay For The Food Stamps And Welfare For This Country. I Don't Feel Like I Should Be Nickle And Dimed To Death Every Time I Make A Purchase At Walmart, Food City Or McDonalswWhere I YET AGAIN Have To Pay Taxes.
