They're bad enough downtown, but now they've invaded the Longwood Medical Area, a concerned citizen complains:

Please do something about these "fundraisers" who harass everyone who walks by. It is obnoxious and invasive. It's particularly upsetting because many of the victims are people who are just trying to get their child to the hospital. These solicitors should not be allowed to do this. They step out in front of you and try to cut you off/body block. It makes me extremely uncomfortable. This is a near-daily occurrence.
