I care very much indeed. I go at least once a week the entire year except summertime and do charity. I also am a member of the CommonCents Charity Organization(they have a website you can check out). I help collect and donate money,clothing and supplies to charities once a year with a dance and a penny harvest at my school. Still, I would like to keep helping out next summer as well >.>.

I care about homeless people..i truly do. But i do not donate or give out money on the streets. My reasons..
-Charities 90% of the time, steal money from what is raised and leave 1% of what was raised and give it to the homeless..which is hardly enough to buy a coffee
-Sending money to other countries is a waist of time..since their governments do steal them too
-Handing out money to a homeless person on the street may not be a smart idea because most of them are either faking being homeless, or only want the money. I've tried giving food to those who asked money for food..and they declinded my food for money...i knew it was for drugs..

I would rather donate my money to a country like haides etc..a place where they dont have a single thing to eat...i would rather go there myself and give it to the families face to face.

I care for them a lot as well, one of the things that get to me a lot is the homeless and how tough they have it without having the essential comforts the average person would have. I believe that everyone needs a home and an opportunity.

umm. I guess I do... but I think if I were ever homeless due to a hurricane I would feel happy that other people had homes! and not everyone was miserable.... yeah...

I don't care for them at all... don't want to sound mean but i think its their fault for not staying in school and now they end up in the street, it was their decision. i know not every homeless end up like that cuz of that reason but yea..
I do feel bad for those homeless people in New Orleans right now tho. those hard worker lost everything just cuz of flood..

my heart goes out to the homeless, and i feel quite sad for their awful situation. i've given them food, money, and donated to charities.

Don't worry about tomorrow, don't think about yesterday,
don't live in the future, just make it through today!

It really depends on why they're homeless. If they're homeless because they're unemployed from lack of trying, I don't feel sorry for them at all. But if it was through circumstances beyond their control, I feel bad and try to help'em out.

Of course i do care about them... I feel really sad when i look at them and I'm crying from inside.... I'm always trying to donate with my money because i don't want to feel that I'm better than them and i want them to have what i have, i know it's impossible but I'm trying my best...

i do care about them, and since i am a christian, i always go to church to give money, which they give to all those homeless/really poor people.

I care for them but that depends on their physical condition for example: having lost one of their leg or arm ; that I really care for them and donate for them but if they are physically well and having a perfect body like everyone else ; I dont really care much for them because they are capable of finding themselves some job like sanitarian work or.. I dunno.. labor work if they are desperate?

I care about all people, but most homeless people I could not care less about helping. They are their because they refused to do what was necessary to keep a home. The ones that are inclined to stop being homeless do, if they work hard to earn it. If you give it to them without them earning it, they just squander it if thats how they got on the streets the first time.

This is of course from an American perspective. In other countries I am sure the situation may differ.

I was to see an homeless person, i would feel great sympathy for him or her.
But at the same time not trust them, because there is a reason they are out there,
and you dont know for sure what it is, So i would give them some money not enough for drugs, and offer the tell them info that could help them..but it is was an family with children i would do way more. And nice Question i might add..Talk to you later.

Whatever their reasons are for living on the streets, i wouldn't know. Can't read minds.
I very rarely give out change if asked, instead i usually buy something like a sandwich or some fruit and give that to them instead.

Some of them I do feel sympathy for. But when they try to trick me for money(one guy asked me for money to get on the skytrain when there wasn't a station around) then the sympathy goes away.

i care, but there is little we can do, because if we give them what we can spare we will only pay for meals so they can survive to live on the street another day. I say we should do something like live 8 but to help the homeless have a home because that is the only way we can put an end to their suffering.

I feel terrible for people who are homeless...I don't know how I could do anything about it though...some of those people would be homeless because they spent their money on drugs and would do the same if you gave them money and that wouldn't help them at all.
I don't have enough money to give to truly help someone...
If I was an emensely rich celebrity...I would pay to build accommodation houses for those who are without homes and can't afford to live anywhere...but then I'd also be worried about people abusing the generosity...it's too hard to say what one can really do...
