A bad fund-raising idea

One fund-raiser that I find very objectionable is the "road block"
or "begging on the corner" approach. This system is frequently
used in this area by volunteer fire companies, veterans groups and
even youth sports teams. Not only is it (IMHO) very dangerous to walk
among vehicles waiting for the light to change, I feel it teaches kids
all the wrong lessons (i.e. If you need money, go out and beg on the
street.) I have never seen Scouts do this and I hope it is because it
is one of BSA's prohibited practices.
