    Giving to the Homeless

    If you gave a homeless person a quarter and they asked you for a dollar instead, would you give it to them?

    Depends on the circumstances.  I don't want to give advice that could get someone hurt.  In a safe environment, tell the person you don't have much money to give, but you wanted to give something.  In other words, it's a good lesson for the homeless person to learn - to be thankful for anything given to help them.

    That's good advice.  Thanks for participating.  I have a number of friends who have been asked for more money.

    I keep Mcdonalds and Hardees Gift certificates in my car for this very thing. I work with the homeless and hungry on a daily basis and I rarely give money.

    If I had the dollar I would.  Keep this question in mind, " What if God was one of us"?

    Personally, when I hand a homeless person money, I always hand him or her at least a dollar, even on those occasions when such a person asks me for only a quarter.
