This charity is relentless. I gave $30 as a one-off donation, I felt pressured to do so as the young man came into the store I work at on Military road, Mosman and spoke for 15 minutes about why I should donate. I have had endless calls since then. I block every call I get from them, they keep resurfacing with different numbers, which I continue to block.

keep calling me. no idea how they keep finding me
Caller: Someone from the Alana and Madelein Foundation.
I am an 82 year old pensioner who made a major mistake last year when I gave $30 (the minimum amount, I was told) to a very personable young person in the street of ..... I was thinking of the 21 year old son I lost and thought I might be helping some other mother). For the rest of that fortnight, my meals had to be even more meagre than usual.
Since then, I have had persistent begging calls from these people. Today was one of the worst: I had to interrupt the called several times to curb the flow of requests/descriptions of donation methods! I explained my circumstances and made clear that the previous donation had necessarily been a 'one off'. She persisted with her requests (demands?), repeating again and again all the different ways I could donate -even after I had pointed out that I just could not! I even told her that I, myself, had been 'assessed (via a request from my doctor) the day before, for the possibility of physical/financial assistance. She continued to repeat her 'spiel'.
These calls are harassment/bullying.. I am in a better position than many who are perhaps less technologically literate, yet I have been extremely upset by them.
The operator involved is either extraordinarily lacking in empathy (especially as she involved with a 'charitable' organisation), or she is lacking in basic intelligence. An alternative explanation could be that she is one of many who are employed to harass the most vulnerable people in society.
What can we do about it?

I too made a one off donation and these people keep calling me. Every time I block their number they call me on another. They never leave a message but listen long enough to activate voice mail.
