It depends on the beggar. There is this one beggar who we have seen at Pirate games so we don't give to him, but the guy who lives under a bridge I do cause he always tells me to keep warm even though he's sleeping in the cold. I used to take him sandwiches and stuff on my lunch break.

to give money to the beggars is your right. i also believe in you say about promotes begging, however my dad told me to help people if you have some penny. its not bullshit, sometimes i did that.
