A Red Cross checkpoint..

Ever been through a Red Cross check point? I have.

My friends and I went through this particular one on the way back to Beirut from Batroun..I don’t mind people asking for donations when cars are at a stop light, but to stop traffic in the middle of the highway to ask for donations?

Now that’s something.

    You basically give money to the red cross workers, it benefits the red cross in someway. Whether towards supplies, workers, drives, etc..

    Exactly….I had just never seen it done like this before..where they stop traffic, and kind of force people to donate..

    this is like little league baseball players and pop warner foot ball players do in America. They stop traffic and walk you to your car begging for money. Homeless people are even worse.
