So l hope all is well with you people here on my lot. The day is shaping up so well and the weather is very perfect here to speak I have actually started the day with my offline Hustles and the progress is not bad at all. So giving is very important to some of the people in the world today. Different people give differently depending on the situation. For instance l can give what l can afford to the people in needy during famine outbreaks, natural calamities among other unprecedented emergencies. People donate food, money, clothing among other things provided it helps the person in needy. However there are those beggars at the streets some are lepers among other people with different physical challenges/disabled. Do you give them cash in the name of helping them? Have a great day!

Children used to come to my house to ask for money. A grown up was hiding behind a corner to take it away from them. I used to bring them to my home. close the fence and prepare them a sandwich to be eaten INSIDE. Now those same younsters steal with weapons. The world has changed. I only give money to institutions that will use the money the way I want to.

That's very disgusting. That way may lead to lack of support to the real needy due to the fact of faking

@LadyDuck Exactly. But here there are many government directed ways to help where you know the money goes to where it should. Just today, there will be a sort of Telethon to help the people in ViƱa del Mar and nearby.

@marguicha This is why it is forbidden here to give money to the beggars, because many are used as "slaves" the money they get goes in the pockets of organized gangs.

@Treborika - I fully agree, those poor people can keep nothing for themselves. If we give food, at least they can eat.

I try to give something whenever someone asks or I see they need money or have a cup. I have given quite a lot of money at times. I am glad to give.

I used to give them cash but not anymore. I prefer to give food and clothes instead of money.

It depends..most of the beggars here are not needy but are fake. They are lazy and find begging the easiest way to earn money.

When I lived in NYC many years ago I never gave cash to beggars because many of them were tricksters. However, one time I visited Portland, Oregon and saw a hungry man on the street. So I reached into my pocket and took out a handful of change and poured it into his hands, His tears were all the thanks I needed, When I lived in Latvia I saw beggars really hustle. Imagine a man begging when he is wearing good clothes and has two dogs????

Earlier there used to be a lot of them on traffic signals. But we don't see them much these days. It's been reported many a times that there is a big racket around begging and most of them might be faking. I rather donate money to some charity for noble causes or help my household help and gardener when they need some money for their children's education.

I have done in the past. There was a young man sleeping in the subway and I felt sorry for him so I gave him a pound.
