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?

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.

"What's the matter with you people? Get a job, go to college."

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.
