I think we should give money to beggars because it makes us feel good, even if the beggar just ends your money on drugs or alcohol.these poor people are just like you and I they just haven't had the luck that we have had in life. We mustn't be judgemental thinking that they are either an alcohol or a drug addict for example.
I give a few dollars if I don't know them if i'm out of town. but the ones I see every week, when the say they will pay you back and don't and then hit everybody in the parking lot up for a dollar. the ones who do that make it hard for the pork joker who might really be out of fuel or needs a meal. as long as the don't hit you every time and the able to do themselves.
Yes, I encourage everyone give money to people in need. Not only is it good to help people out who are in need, you never know when you could find yourself in a similar situation. If you needed a meal you would most certainly want people to help you out. Have compassion for those who are less fortunate than you!
Helping those in need is an act of kindness humans should be more prone to practice, as many homeless and destitute people have been victims of terrible circumstances and are only trying to survive. Of course, you should always use your common sense and judgment when choosing who to give your money to.
Beggars are people too and they may have experienced a bit of hard luck, but they need to eat and buy many of the things we take for granted. You never know what life can be like until you don't have the basic necessities in life. Granted some of these individuals are con artists, but don't let that discourage you from helping a fellow human in need. Life by the mantra "pay it forward" because kindness will come back to you n your time of need.
We don't know what they went through and they could be doing everything to try to make a better life. I mean they could have a job but still be homeless because being paid minimum wage is like nothing. There are a lot of reasons and I don't want to try to reason if giving to that person is really worth it because there are people who don't need it but what about the people who do. I'm not just going to pass them by because of the others. I don't think they should suffer especially if they are trying everything. I choose to not focus on the people who don't and choose to focus on the people who do because I'm not going to let this generalization about homeless people make me think that many aren't good.
Adding to this the opposition makes living on the street and begging to be an easy thing and a choice. A lot of people on the street especially now are on the street because of events outside there control. The people who beg on the street live hard lives and while it would be naive to suggest that some of them are not milking the system they are still begging through necessity and not because its easy like the opposition suggest.
I wonder if the opposition would chose to live on the streets and also wonder if the speaker fell on hard times would the speaker get off the streets as easily as he suggests and secure a job in a environment were the average person finds it hard to do at the minute or if they too would end up "taking the easy way and begging"
We can define “Money” as a “ Financial Gain”. The beggars are begging for money for their own finance. They don’t have enough ability to earn money in a company, so they are begging for money. We could also define “Beggars” as “A person of a specified type, often one to be envied or pitied”. We must have pity on them. They don’t have any ability nor money to maintain themselves. So we should give money to the beggars. We can define “Money” as a “ Financial Gain”. The beggars are begging for money for their own finance.

First, we will define the meaning word by word. We can define “Money” as a “ Financial Gain”. The beggars are begging for money for their own finance. They don’t have enough ability to earn money in a company, so they are begging for money. We could also define “Beggars” as “A person of a specified type, often one to be envied or pitied”. We must have pity on them. They don’t have any ability nor money to maintain themselves. So we should give money to the beggars.
OF course we should give or else who will support them. Its a fact that more than 50% of the beggars are lazy and around 20% of them are misleading us.But there are also people who are not in a physical condition to earn and suffice themselves and their families needs. For them we have to spend time with them. At least 15mins would be enough to understand them, give them love and care and if possible be with them for some days and support them. Do it for at least one child and help him/her to be on the right track. Its not something impossible, its just a practical service that many of us are doing...And then see the difference of just simply giving 10/- to them...
Because most of the beggars we see are not even in need, most of them are just too lazy to work but they need money. If we give the panhandlers money they will think that it is better to beg than to work, If America's people thought that, America as a country would fall to its knees.
That some are faker and some beggers use drugs there for they spend your money on drugs and do you think that it is right way no if you really want to do something for beggars then make a charity for them and if we help them with money then they said it is very easy way to earn money
Has anyone ever just given you a handout or have you had to work hard for what you have? I'm sure that your life hasn't always been easy, but did you resort to begging on the street corner? No, I don't think so. You did what you had to do to pull yourself up! For some reason think its okay to just give handouts? There are tons of governmental assistance programs that we already pay for that many homeless people either do not use for bad reasons or abuse and still panhandle. A panhandler in Denver told me once that he makes on average $200 a day!
Just need a dollar to get yourself a hot dog and you recently got cancer and AIDS and you don't have a job? Sure... Then I pull out my wallet which he is watching curiously, sees a couple 20's and decides to grab it and run or beat the ever-living crap out of me and take it. You can't tell who is sincere sometimes, but if you have to listen to a 5 minute back-story its probably a bunch of bull.
Most of the beggars on the roads are usually drug addicts, alcholics, gamblers etc. Do you really want to give your money to someone who will waste ther money on sinful acts, they need to work for there money and you cant just give your money to someone that you dont know and can you really trust them? Yes you may feel sorry for them, even i do, but half of them are not doing anything good with the money. Most are gypsies anyway
If you stop supporting the needy they might be forced to go to somewhere other than your pockets for money. They might be forced to get a job, live on welfare or social services til' they get back on their feet. Or they can start relying on the salvation army and food bank or soup kitchen for food and shelter. Plus they'd probably get better from these places than they'd get from our money
No, because beggars don't even try to work and earn because they know that they can get money without any efforts.They wander making the surroundings unhygienic and insecure.they can never become independent as if we are making them dependent on others.like if they are sure that they can earn $500 a day without any work and efforts, then why will they do the work. if are giving them money, we are spoiling them and our country ourselves because most of the citizens are not contributing our country's economy by begging.
people who work in projects to help the poor most of the time get $15,000 less than the normal person.
so we should not have to give hard earned money
and people on the streets are like dangerous and can kill you. poor people just don't want to get a job . and earn $120 a day and that adds up. so it like not telling the truth to get money cause they are not get a job when they can by saving up renting a home and getting a job.
While people may feel pity for beggars and their circumstances, giving them money only positively reinforces their behavior. This only creates more of them, adding to the social nuisance they create. In addition, the money given probably isn't even going to help them, considering how often the money they get ends up being spent on alcohol or other drugs instead of food or basic necessities. Give to charity, not beggars.
People who are "down on their luck" can in fact get work, but only if the pressure for them to do it is high. This will be difficult for those who are legitimately in trouble. They may have to get very hungry before taking the necessary steps to get work. But people who are desperate do amazing things to stay on their feet.
There are centers which exist to help the truly homeless rebuild their lives. Donate to those. If you feel the need to help a homeless person now, direct them to one of these centers. Do your research now, find out which centers are the most effective, and in the future tell homeless people how to get the proper help.
If they are just being lazy and don't really need help, giving them money will only bolster the facade, or the addictions.
To end off, I'd like to add that I am currently jobless, and my wife will soon not have a job either. We still have a place to sleep because both of us are working as hard as we can to raise additional money for ourselves, both though odd jobs and occasional contract work where we can get it. We still have a home, and we won't become homeless. We keep our friends close and lean on them for support if needed (and of course we return the favor when our luck is in and theirs is not).
To contrast, my uncle is homeless by choice. He lives on the donations of others who believe he is actually in trouble. It's despicable really.
So don't do it. Let the homeless suffer just enough to where they will actually make themselves save themselves. Then and only then give them help.
