I’m glad it’s on my list now :).
I live in a place with many homeless people. At first (and even now), it really broke my heart to see so many on the streets, especially in the cold (and either way, it cannot be pleasant). It also broke my heart that many friends warned me not to give them money or anything because there have been stories of people snatching wallets. I followed their advice for a long time and recently, as I met up with a new friend (from this area), she was watching a performer in the subway station. When I approached, she said she really liked the music and tipped him. I smiled and I thought that I should follow her example.
It’s hard knowing I can’t help out every single person but it doesn’t mean I can’t help one or two as often as I can. I started giving my change to people who happen to be outside the Subway I frequent often. I’m going to start tipping the street performers I encounter too.
