A beggar, a busker, or a charity worker? Who are you most like to give money to?


Do you have a criteria which you use to determine who you donate money to?

    Having lived in the UK for many years, I would agree with you regarding some charity workers. A simple shaking of their plastic collection container is all it takes to tell me they are there. Some nearly block the entrance to the stores.

    It is diffiuclt to know who is in genuine need and who sees begging more as an occupation. In the UK there are many who are scammers and pretend to be 'on the streets' but have driven to their prime location to beg daily then return home.

    Hi Aime,

    I think you've expressed some of the concerns we all have of giving to someone who is begging.

    Some people believe when giving to charities the money will get used for administrtion costs. It can be a minefield. Thanks for your answer.

    I didn't realize you could get a receipt but that is a good idea. Thanks.
