Yes. I have and will agian. while i am not well off I know there are people out there with much less than myself. I personally like to give it to the folks directly rather than through some big charity organization.

I won't! Most of them here in India are just trying to make fast money by begging. Even if they are capable and you offer them a job, they refuse. They even take kids on rent to beg. I don't think I want to encourage that sort of thing.

Nope! Not after I got to know them and saw what they did with the money! I work hard for what little money I get and am tired of giving it to beggers just so they can drink it up! I thought I was giving it so they can eat but then I discovered there's free hot meals all over the city, plus free care packages, midnight sandwiches and food banks, and they all know where they are and they hit every one of them too!
