I Gave Food To A Homeless Guy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 107 People

    If they ask for food

    More Like We...

    My Fiance and I gave food to a homeless man today. We gave him a slice of an Apple pie. I know it wasn't much, but still, at least it was something. We just HAD to do it. It didn't even cross our minds not to.

    And It Was Rejected!

    I always, always, always gave change to the homeless people on the street when I lived and worked in Chicago. I even had my "regulars" who I would see every day on my walk from the El to my office.  Until, one night a few days before Thanksgiving a woman approached me at the...
