    There are those that say it’s wromg, it doesn’t solve the homelessness problem, give food and give money to the charities. That’s what they say. I’ve done all of that and given money. No giving to one person, won’t solve the problem for all. Maybe it will give that person a bed for the night, maybe they’ll just get another hit or another bottle, depending on how they choose to spend it. It’s their choice not mine. Not that I want to encourage them to make themselves more ill than the streets have made them. Sometimes, in my experience, the biggest thing you can give someone living in the streets is a ‘hello’. Just an acknowledgement, that they are human. We can all give them that.

    What do you think about giving money? Do you ever do it?

    I often give cash to people asking for it in the streets.

    Yes what they do with it is their choice.
