Do you ever feel pressured to give to charity?
For instance, when you enter a mall and there are bell-ringers standing outside, do you feel you just have to give something? Or, if people are passing around something in the workplace or at school, do you feel you have to give?

Not at all

No, when some guy comes round every couple of days asking to give out your bank details for the poor Mountain gorillas or the starving children of Guatemala it gets a bit tired. I'll give money when I can - I certainly won't have it taken out of my bank acount every month.

Yes. Everyday when I go to work I come across atleast three different charities people at the train stations that I am on or down the street I work on. I'm on a traineeship and I don't have much money (it doesn't help that I am in a lot of debt). I am so sick of getting hassled for cash.

Sometimes.

never...

sometimes i feel bad for bums on the corner who beg for money, but i never give it to them...nothing is stopping them from applying to the millions of mcdonalds, burger kings, wendys etc. around here...i cant get a job there because im "over qualified" which im really not, so i know they can...

Yes. Just last night in the pub, a woman came up to our table and asked us all to give £2 each to a charity we'd never heard of.

No. I like to know that I've helped someone else.

I give to a couple of charities, yet it seems there are always more that want donations. I know I shouldnt feel bad , because noone can give to every single charity, but I still end up feeling a little guilty.

No, never. I donate canned goods. That's it.

If it's a charity that's worth it like AIDS or cancer, then I give some money.
