Missing the point.
You all don't understand. When you give money to a beggar, even "one or two coins", you are creating MORE beggars. Is this what you want? Because this is exactly what happens. What if, instead of helping them, you're actually hurting them - and others, too!???|
If you really want to help a beggar, you've got to STOP and give them your time. Find out where they live, what is the origin of their problem, etc....
Then, if they don't have a home, you've got to take them (yes, truly helping someone is going to take real time) to a shelter. (I've done this so I know of what I speak.) By the way, fear not, most of the beggars you meet don't want your help, THEY WANT YOUR MONEY!
In fact, only twice have I taken beggars to shelters. ALL of the other times I've been told "NO", just give me some money. One of the two times was on a very cold night, and the shelter was already closed, but I persisted and the workers finally came to see that both I and the beggar were serious about getting him some help.
