The "accepting of donations" is not limited to Saturdays, but it's certainly the day it's most prominent. On each Saturday the roadside is full of people with their hands out, some are associated with churches, some schools and others... well, they want money too. The expectation here is that they stand on the side of the road and wave and then you throw bills out your window. This collection of pictures was taken today (Saturday) on a 15 minute drive to the store and back.
It's pretty common to see a "car wash" sign and yet never a hose or a bucket.
In the eleven months we've been here I have yet to see a car being washed at one of these "fund raisers".
It can be a little dangerous and you have to watch out for kids running into the road to grab cash thrown from other vehicles.
And last, but not least, my personal favorite... the folks who didn't even want to stand or wave. The guy in yellow just held up a dollar to indicate why they are sitting there.
