I too have met Denise at my door. The 1st time my hubby gave her $20. The 2nd time I gave her $20. Then I tried looking up the org on a charity listing site. Nothing. The 3rd time she came by (always late) I told her I could not find the org listed on any charity sites or anywhere on the web, and she said something about that costs money...no other proof to show where the money goes or who the people are or anything. So I simply said I would not be making any more donations unless she can produce proof, and I have not seen her since. I did just check & found the org on the CA DOJ site: Web Link&
Still, it did not inspire trust for me. Now I require a website, pamphlet, receipt example, something before I will give.
But there is the still the candy lady (for recovering addicts), my hub is a sucker for expensive candy. sigh.
