    I think the most I have ever given to a homeless person was 5 dollars.

    twenty dollars, picked up a homeless man walking from Ky to New York, gave him a place to stay, a meal and 20 bucks the next day.  Was one of the most rewarding things I have ever done.

    I give homeless people water bottles which I always carry. I have given shoes and blankets to those I know have encampments. I never give money.

    I together with my wife and daughter built a house for a homeless family ( on their land ) That cost us about $5000and some other friends helped to finish the balance work and for the basic furniture.

    Probably about a pound in change, enough to get a warm drink.
    In the UK, I don't think there should be any homeless people, there are hostels etc where they can get support and a bed for a few nights. Sounds sad but I think those that are homeless are homeless by their own choice.

    I gave five dollars along with my half-cup of coffee.  He looked like he really needed it.

    sadly only 1,000 yen - about 11 dollars.

    Charity is an interesting topic I think.

    It is there to help those in need by people who can give.

    Yet why do people give?

    This usually brings up debates around the idea altruism. Which I don't think really exists but I'll leave that topic alone for now.
