Sometimes I'll ask what they need the money for and buy it for them - that way I know at least what it is being used for. I took one fellow with me to the grocery and bought food for him and his family, then drove him to the place they were staying, and felt I'd really helped someone in need. On the other hand, I've also helped the "guy at the gas station" who needed to get home - I have to say it was a gas station I use fairly frequently and I've never seen him or his elderly father around there again, so that gives it some points for being legit.

I agree with those who say that sometimes you give anyway because you might just help someone who really needs it.
