  • I carry McDonalds gift certificates and I give a few "bucks" to the homeless I run into.

  • I have.  I am not going to act like I do it all the time because I don't but I have.  There was a guy who use to stand on the corner asking for money right by my house.  He had something wrong with his heart, was waiting on his disability.  A friend of mine had a room to spare, I got them in contact with each other.  He got over 60,000 when his disability kicked in.  He tried to give me the money I had given him back and  I wouldn't take it.  He decided to move to another state, the day he left he put a thousand bucks in my mailbox.  I was at that time seriously desperate and in a bind.  I didn't know what we were going to do.  He always claimed that my little money saved him but in reality, he saved me.  I'd give to anyone what ever I could.

  • I hardly ever see homeless unless they are standing by the interstate intersection. And I don't usually give them money. Bring on the down votes.

  • it just depends on the circumstances and honestly the look of a person ( i wont give money to some young kid standing on the corner looking scruffy, but if its an older man or woman i might) honestly i tryed to give to people i see trying to help themselves....

  • We don't have a lot of homeless people here, but when I see one and feel led to I will give them money. In our community we have more people who utilize food pantries so I donate to those quite often. The church where we have our girl scout meetings has a the largest pantry and we take in food items every few weeks to donate.
