Attaching a gift of money to a birthday card, for one
Yes, and then the birth card and the money/check is gone as some post man just keeps it for himself. Same with cash.
No one in Europe is going to send checks/cash via mail, unless they are special checks that can only be cashed in by "the owner/the addressee" showing a passport.
Even if a bank offers a wire transfer for no fee, you still have to know your recipient's bank account number, and you still have to either "go to the bank IN PERSON" or subscribe to cellular Internet service to set one up.
No, you don't have to subscribe to a cellular internet service.
That is a pretty dumb assumption. Any internet service does it. And ofc you can mail the transfer order to the bank, so you have no need to go there in person, and ofc. that service is free for individuals.
Bottom line: payment habits are a cultural thing.
Some have a donation box near each of the auditorium's exits; this is the common practice for Jehovah's Witnesses. Others pass around a bag or tray into which members of the congregation drop cash or checks
Yes, I know. The point was: is actually someone putting money into that? I know no one who ever did, but anyway, I'm an Atheist, I'm only in the church if some get married or a child is baptized.
