  • I think we should give money to beggars

    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.

  • Depends ?

    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 think it is alright to give money to beggars

    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!

  • Yes, you should give alms to beggars.

    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.

  • They Are People Too

    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.

  • Yes they should

    People should give money to beggars because some kids or teens are money beggars so why don’t you just give money to the beggars ok and yes o think that we should give the money to beggars ok ok so yeah my final answer is yes ok ok good bye

  • Give if in need

    My position is not give to everyone who is begging or asking for money, That jus encourages bad behaviour. There are exceptions such as when someone is obviously in need. Sometimes this is a judgement call and there is an element of judgemental thinking to this, It's also the compassionate thing to do.

  • Life is hard

    There is no god, All we have is each other, I’d rather give money to someone who needs it even if they are going to spend it on drugs at least they will be able to be happy for a little bit and that’s worth it to me. All life is valauable

  • Yes have pity on the poor, Most are victims of rich elites

    Yes have pity on the poor, Most seems to be victims of circumstances not by choice, All thanks to the excessively greedy rich elites.
    The current monetary system in developed countries is totally broken with all the bad debts and unrealistic stock market futures which is out of touch with reality and news. Excessive greed at the top 1% and massive income inequality. Poorer workers gets exploited & treated like disposable slaves by richer elites.
    Greedy unrealistic lazy older fat cat bosses and tech replacements No job security for younger workers, Global wide competition, Tech automation replacing good paying jobs. In office corporate worlds, Excessively greedy old rich fat-cat bosses with too high expectations on their employees, Creating extreme work pressure with unpaid overtime and very high staff turnover rate, While abusing low-paying internship and offshore consultancy. Workers have put in all the extra efforts with unpaid overtime in weekends and late shifts, But workers STILL get fired or laid off due to company restructuring or whatever excuses the greedier bosses decides on.
    There is no wonder why birth rates are continuing to decline in developed & more educated western nations.
    Its a race to the bottom.
    If this continue, Be prepared for the decline of human society in the world. (Hopefully more peaceful than the world wars eras)

  • Weighing happiness pennies

    Beggars do not want to be beggars/ They want to be rich, to help that , we should give money to beggars. We could give inconvienient chang which are a few coins. That is not expensive. They help the beggars live, eat, work. So we should give money to beggars.

  • No, you should not give money to beggars.

    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.

  • There are many reason

    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

  • Only if you want them to take your entire wallet!

    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.

  • Drugs, Drugs, Drugs

    I work long hours for very little pay and because of that I value the money I have worked hard to earn. I fail to see why I should give my hard earned money to someone who sits on the street all day. In addition I pay a fortune in taxes that supposedly go towards welfare, I am not handing out additional money (especially since I live in Massachusetts which has really high taxes). Finally a majority of the the beggars are either scams or drug users.
    Beggars need to earn the money got be handed being a parasite on civilization.

  • Begging is a Profession

    George Orwell said it best: A beggar, looked at realistically, is simply a businessman, getting his living, like other businessmen, in the way that comes to hand. He has not, more than most modern people, sold his honor; he has merely made the mistake of choosing a trade at which it is impossible to grow rich.

  • if you stop supporting them they can start supporting themseves

    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 others work hard for their 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!

  • I think we should not give money to beggars.

    It is the beggars' fault being poor. If they worked hard as we or our parents do, they would certainly be a person like us. So we should not give our money to beggars to give them chances for them to raise their power and be a successful man or woman.

  • It would be better not helping the street beggars

    Street beggars usually have lack of hope for their lives. So it is common for you to waste your money because they spend their money on drugs. Just making you feeling better cannot be the reason of helping beggars. They became like how the are now because maybe they did not care themselves when young. It is better to sped money on charities. Making the beggars drink too much drug can cause them to dye. Your kind offer will lead them to more serious laziness than ever.

  • Beggars should not be given money

    The beggars are doing the beggary as they are lazy to work, they are unaware about any work, they think beggary is the easy way to earn money than doing work.
    We should not give money to the beggars simply as we don’t know exactly if they are beggars or not. If we give it to a charity it would be useful. I very strongly suspect that all the money that a beggar collects goes to alcohol or drugs.
