Charity begins in the street

People are rather charity-conscious in the Outpost (unlike Compatrido pachyderms, who have only recently discovered similar notions). On rainless days (i.e. usually), when traffic lights turn red, people in caps and T-shirts, raffle tickets in hand, leave the pavement corners and balance their way between the rows of waiting cars asking for contributions. The old-fashioned pedestrian-oriented version is simply not found here: only immigrants walk.
