Sometimes you dont know if people are being fake or not.Sometimes people have signs up saying that they need to pay their rent, some say they are homeless.I think well that could be me.If they r pullin my leg then thats something they have take up with God. But if i really have some money I would give theme something.

The thing is you don't really know. They did a "news special" on it one time and basically concentrated on the ones that were faking. What about the ones who aren't? It just makes you think.

If it's a good cause and I have the money, I don't mind it.

Oh..I'm sorry I wasn't clear enough. I was asking about the people with the "will work for food" signs.

I don't care if they are faking or not, if I have some $ on me then I will help them. The way I look at it. I get a good deed in the big book of life either way cause all I wanted to do was help a person in need. If they are faking then they will have to pay for that on judgement day.

I always hate it when I see young people standing in the middle of heavy traffic asking for money. I'm so afraid that one of them will get injured. However, I still give them something. I realize how difficult it is for students to raise money for their organizations, and I always like to help them out.

If I have the money and they look really needy yes I will.. i believe in karma and I would hope in time of need someone would help me.. if the person looked like a drunk I would prolly offer to buy him food first...
