Charities Reject Donations from Strippers

According to Fox News, only the Marines' Toys for Tots program and City Harvest were willing to accept donations from exotic dancers from "Scores" gentleman's club in New York City. Other charities refused the gifts on principle. Morgan, one of the dancers, was hurt:
I don't understand why anyone would deny that right [to receive charity] to anbody. It's not up to them to say that [needy individuals] can't have food for Christmas or a toy for Christmas.
Kelly, another dancer, says that many of the charities she wanted to donate to support empowering women, and she believes she--a single mom--is empowering herself in her "profession."
And, "giving is giving," she said.
Watch their interview, "Bah Humbug," on Fox's site and let me know what you think. Is giving simply giving, or does it matter who the giver is?
