Just a warning for people - we had an elderly lady knock on our door today asking for charity donations for children's cancer. I asked to see her ID and she let me have a quick glance, so I asked to have a better look at it. The ID did not have children's cancer but had some children's spinal foundation and was expired in 2010. When I questioned this lady she commented that she just hadn't updated the ID and changed her story so that she is collecting for both childrens' cancer and spinal foundation.
Please check the ID of charity workers before handing any donations. It ends up being the real charities that miss out.
This lady was taking advantage of the fact she is elderly and it is Easter so that people may be more generous with donations. Unfortunately I did not take notice of her name....really horrible that there are people who actually will take advantage of peoples' generosity like this.
