Too many charities bothering the lunch crowds
The problem is that every day of the week there is a different organization, not realizing that for the previous days, other organizations were doing the same thing. The worst are these people in the pink shirt, they come out in droves, as many as six or eight.
In the past, I've handed some of the organizations cash on the spot and they've taken it, but I hear their main goal is to sign you up for their mailing list and to get you to donate through your credit card monthly. It's not a bad thing and they are all legitimate organizations from what I can see, but it's the way they go about it. They sort of swarm onto a person annoyingly. I've tried to explain that it's the same group of people walking by them every day and have been there, done that, heard all their spiels.
They can make you feel guilty because obviously they are nice people or they wouldn't be out volunteering for their cause, but it's just too much, too confined to a small area. The religious people that set up were asked to move, you can see them on South Bayshore Drive in front of Shake-A-Leg now, trying to joggers and bicyclers' attention. Maybe they should banish these charity people, too.
