I don't see too many of these bell ringers in my area like when I was younger growing up. I remember little old ladies or men with the red jacket on ringing the bell non stop. My father use to give my brother and I some change and we would throw the change in the kettle. It was a good memory. The other day I was going to the super market and I saw this young guy standing outside the super market, he looked weird, not looking the part, almost hung over. The set up looked phony. Not really ringing the bell or greeting people and on the other hang texting on his cell phone. Looked like a scam, to me at least.
Yeah.....not happening. Wish I took a picture to post, just did not look legit.
