I think I should make a t-shirt outlining the reasons why I don’t want to give to Children’s International so I could wear it on walks and they wouldn’t have to stop and interrupt me and make me miss green walk lights any more. I just need to figure out how to word it. 

Reason 1- Administrative costs. How much of my money is going to the kid, and how much of it is going to you to go out recruiting people? How 'bout, the person who hired you, the person who hired them, etc.
Reason 2- Healthy skeptisism. (this bit I'm not sure how to word.in a simple way. Basically, Cathy used to have a kid she sponsored and all the letters were the same as were all the little drawings this supposed child did. As Cathy put it "either there's some sweat shot putting out these drawings or this kid is a really big beach scene enthusiast.")
Reason 3 - I'm 80K in student loan debt and planning on going back to school and getting more...
Reason 4 - I don't like children. (Read as: BAH HUMBUG!)

Say you already have a child and start sobbing about single motherhood and how THEY should be helping YOU. Or you could wave them off and keep walking.

Yeah, usually the passive Seattle shrug is my standard responce, but sometimes they get really agressive. You're right I could totally lie.

My responses are usually along the lines of -

"If I buy 2 will you throw the third one in for free?"
or
"What do they run per pound?"
or
"Do they do windows?"

You should print out these reasons on little flyers and pass them out to people who stop you--as you keep walking.

I thought of that, if it were on a shirt, I'd have to stop and let them read them. Flyers make more sense.
