Why y’all want only cash and Bahamians don’t travel with cash? Will the Red Cross Fair modernize and be open to CHANGE this year?
I want to add my two cents to the 2019 Red Cross Fair committee, which I believe should modernize its way of making money.
I came to the fair last year with about $25 in my pocket, having just returned from a funeral on Saturday afternoon. After paying the entry fee and stopping to one booth, I realized I was already out of cash and only had my cards in my wallet.
Thinking that, with bankers collecting the cash, someone would have a mobile card reader so I could purchase more tickets, was I surprised that no one in the bank [at the fair] had any card readers so I could purchase more tickets. And here is the problem with the Fair: people quickly run out of funds and the fair is not friendly to the fact that persons just like me do not carry around much money.
As a supporter of the Annual Red Cross Fair, please this year get with the times. Think of providing modern means to access cash at the fair this year please. This year I am coming only with my card and if you people are not ready and prepared to introduce payment via visa – then tough love!
