I was recently shopping on 5th avenue in New York City. I was on my way to Bergdorf’s, when I saw a woman huddled on the ground with a thin blanket wrapped around her. She looked to be in her fifties. She was shivering, as it was very, very cold out. She had a can next to her, and people were putting money into the can. This was one of the saddest things I had seen in a while!
I don’t carry cash on me, but if I had some, I definitely would have given it to her. Since I didn’t have cash, I decided to buy the woman a coat. Unfortunately, she was gone by the time I left Bergdorf’s.
my question to you is this: Do you give money to people on the street? Why or why not? Let’s Talk!!
