I have gotten into the habit of asking where my money goes when I make a donation. The schnorrers could be taking the donation and pocketing it for themselves or for causes and people I do not want to support. While there is a philosophy that if someone is asking for charity, then don't question, just give. I can't subscribe to that anymore. I do not want to support the ultra relgious or the settler movement so any organizations or people that I give donations to I vet. Be careful who you give your half-shekels to.
