It's definitely a scam. I've seen them do it for many years now with the same "cause." They mainly target Asians who look like they could be Filipino. I'm Filipino myself, and I just pretend to be Chinese whenever they ask me, so they flip off.

Only had one run-in with these people. They came into Honolulu on Kingsway around 10pm or so. Just randomly sat down with people at their tables... freakin' annoying and rude.

I mean honestly though, if they could prove to me they were a legitimate charity organization, I would mind donating a couple bucks. Like when I go to Timmy's I usually drop a loonie or a toonie in the donation box at the register if I get change back.

Legit registered charitable organizations are always able to provide tax receipts. It's a good thing to keep in mind, unless it's petty change for Salvation army, Cadets, etc.

Had one women rush over to me as I was walking to staples and ask for a donation of change. I told her I had no change because it's a hassle to carry around in the type of wallet I have so she asks me for paper money and I was in disbelief no charity or any type of money collecting has ever been as persistent as to ask for paper money. Figured something was up so I said no thank you and tried to leave but she kept following me asking for money, normally I'm a pretty patient personbut she kept harassing me for paper money and saying I'm not letting the kids have a home at which point I just got really fed up and said if I donate money to you and they get homes what am I going to get I'm trying to save money for a mortgage down payment so I have a place to live... The nerve she said "so? This is for the kids I can goto the bank with you to get money". I just got pissed off told her to donate her own money and tried to walk away... Walked into staples she followed me but since my gf works there and the managers kind of know me I told them she was harassing me they asked her to leave saw her leave the store really pissed off. These people are annoying rude and very dissrespectable just ignore them your best bet.

I've had them twice come into restaurants to ask.
why the managers don't kick them out with more force I don't know.
one time they even had a guitar and were singing.
I said no, then went to the store next door, bought a 649 and said oh sorry I found some change.
fucking retards.

yeah I'm pretty sure I ran into them awhile back by commercial drive, they asked me for a donation to some funding for underprivileged children. I didn't think much about it and gave them a 5 which I thought was a pretty generous donation coming from a broke college student. All they said when I gave them the 5 was why I wasn't donating the other two 20's in my wallet, they hounded me for awhile for the 20's but I just put on my headphones and walked off lol.

Next time they come up asking for donations, just tell them you will give them a dollar for every push up they do...

Then don't.

Sooner or later their arms will get tired and they will just stop asking people for fear of more MUSCLE TEARING PUMPS!!!!!

I remember the day the news of the Hongers who were shot on that bus in the Philippines, these same Filipino came into a chinese restaurant and asked for donations for the "children in the Philippines"

I mean are they out of their mind? The Chinese have only hatred in their eyes against these people, and they ask for money?

Am I the only one surprised that some of you give 5 or 10 bucks to people "repping" a "charity" they've never heard of?

Scam or not (which it probably is 99% chance), please only donate money to causes you actually support or trust. I know your heart is in the right place when you do this but it does take away from legit charities, where you KNOW the money is going where you want it.

If it's proven that these are 100% scam, we should just go around looking for them and if they ask for money, punch them in the face - that should put an end to it pretty quick.

Wow, I thought it was just me. I ran into them 3 times in total. All three times were at Superstore. One time I was going to work and she just leeched onto me and wouldn't leave, but I just walked away. The second time I was with my buddy and the same woman asked us for money. I didn't have any bills so I just dumped all my pennies and dimes into the bucket, while my buddy only had bills and no change so the bitch had the audacity to ask if he would donate the bills and if he wouldn't, she would follow him to the counters to exchange for coins. One time I was with my mama and another bitch asked us for money, I was like "MOTHER DON'T DO IT!!!!" But too late, my mother already took out some change.

I also hate the scouts people that block the doors at Richmond Centre and ask for money, like fuck you seriously, if I want to donate, I wouldn't need you to remind me, and maybe I don't want to donate to that certain cause.

Yeah, these things are totally the same.

You know, one being a scam and all while the other being a legitimate youth organization that lacks funding.
