What was the most money you've ever given to a homeless person?
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.

Would you ever open up your home to a homeless person? Even for just a night?It is freezing where I live, I mean brutally cold and my young daughters noticed a homeless person on the street as we drove by. We believe in helping others and donate a lot of our time and resources to that end....

With the recession going on, I have noticed several new cardboard signs asking for food, money or gas. How do you distinguish the real from the fake, and what should you do to help them?
