Hello mylotters, I'm a Chinese girl. In my city, it is common to see beggars along the streets. Especially in train stations, there are more. To tell the truth, now i don't help them any more. Perhaps i will be considered cold-blooded. But we should face the fact that there are many people who pretend beggars and earn money without hardworking. It is really disgusting! What about you? Would you still kind-hearted to help those beggars?

Friend if you want to help them don't just give them money you can give them food especially the children, but if you are capable of giving why don't you give, but you have to remember this don't give them fish teach them how to fish, I hope that the government have their programs for beggars, and I wish that there will be no beggars anymore.

i will not give money to beggar, most of them are just too lazy to work, want easy money, if they are really poor, cannot find a job for the time being, i rather buy them some food.

With all the expose on organized groups who make business out of begging in the streets, you cannot help but have second thoughts about sharing your blessing with the beggars you see in the streets. I would rather give them food than money. At least I'm sure where will my help go.

I don't offer money if some one merely begs sitting along the road side..i like to give money to those people who beg by singing some song , playing some instrument, cleaning the car window etc..little bit of work done is good and worth giving money..we should not entertain beggars who merely begs without doing anything..
