#20, I agree that SOME of them choose it. Not cause they don't give a shit but because it's easier. A vast majority are out there because they don't know any better. They don't know about, or they can't follow the rules of, or whatever their own reasons are or they feel ashamed that they let themselves into that position so a lot of them hide in the bottom of a bottle and avoid institutions put out there to help them, just doing the bare minimum to get by: sleeping under overpasses and begging f

#31 I once spent about $30 on food at a grocery store for a homeless person who said he was because I wanted to, and I didn't have much money in the bank either.

I once tried to get mcdonalds I just bought for myself to a homeless person holding a sign that said would work for food. He threw it back at me and said give me effing money.

I dont give homeless people cash at all, most likely they will spend it on drugs. And no, i wont spend $20-25 on a gift card for them. Chances are they wont use it anyways.

I agree with #57 either try giving them food or nothing at all. You can always donate to shelters whenever you feel like helping out.

Some people have bills to pay actually. I'm guessing your a teen who lives for free off their parents and has truck loads of cash to donate when necessary?
