I must admit that I am not a fan of fund raising schemes that also benefit the giver, whether it be in the form of a little television coverage a la Red Nose Day or looking wonderfully funny in a clerical outfit. We are all of one mind surely, that the left hand should not know what the right is doing when it comes to donating to a good cause. I also like to make certain that, by giving to a "generic" charity appeal, I am not supporting pro abortion or pro homosexual type organisations.
So I tend not to give when a 'monk' shakes a bucket of coins under my nose.

It is only reasonable that they should be subject to the same good natured ridicule and contempt as us Christians.
I cannot for the life of me begin to imagine how isolated and excluded they must feel.
And I just cannot comprehend why those who love to dress up don't focus on some clown like Islamic costumes. Could it be because they fear a fatwa or two?
