How often do you give to beggars/homeless?

Just had this guy walk up to me and ask for a few dollars so he can eat..I told him I didn't have any cash on me, which was true...but I could've easily ran into the store and swiped some off my debit card. And now I feel bad for the guy, and kind of mad at myself because I could be in his situation and would want someone to help me to get on my feet.

So do any OTers go out of their way to help the homeless?

I give to organizations who's job it is to help those people.

Since it happens every day where I live, not as often. It happens outside work, at the gas station, in any parking lot, intersection, grocer, at my home, etc. There is not a single place where someone hasn't asked me for cash.

I can understand that...but I really don't get asked a lot at all.

Rarely. But when I do what usually compels me is a combination of the vibe I get from the guy/girl and if I actually have money to give.

I stopped giving to beggars in the US after spending about 5 years in a third world country.

Never give cash. I will buy food for people.

Don't see too many people around here but I used to take people to the McDonald's on Canal Street.

Never. I donate to local charities I trust. Fund raisers for people here who've lost or have some sort of disease.

I give them advice all the time.

Would $ 5-10 really hurt you though?

I do when the impulse hits me. Today I saw a female asking while smoking, won't contribute to that.
Yeah I know, they all smoke.
