Some charities do have business arrangements with companies who provide people to obtain subscriptions/donations using direct debits from members of the public.
These people may say they work for a particular charity and may even be dressed as such but they are not. They will be directly employed by these companies and usually paid in relation to the number of direct debits they arrange.
These companies get a significant payment from the charities, usually a percentage of the value of the first years direct debit, for this work.
The informal name for these people is "chuggers"and you should be aware that some charities are prepared to write off most of the first years donation in the hope the the direct debit will continue for a number of years.
My comments relate to "chuggers" in general and not to the charities mentioned in the thread.
