Kindness, to give or not to give?

On the tube this morning two homeless people were begging. I noticed one person gave them both money. I gave them a Kellogg’s breakfast bar (the look on their faces was priceless).I’m not sure it’s what they wanted or expected. 

The real question though is, do you give money or not? The guidance is ‘no’. Apparently it encourages more begging and they can buy drugs. But hey, they are at the lowest you could be surely a £ or ££ isn’t going to change their world and it may well give them some respite, if only for a minute.
