I like the way u helped. Appreciate it
This is like the answer to a prayer. I've been searching for an idea that i felt good about to respond to homeless folks who occupy traffic islands and approach cars waiting at lights. I don't usually have cash at hand, and i've felt uncomfortable before, between a rock and a hard place, unsure what would be the best thing to do. The gift cards are easy to keep on hand for just such occasions. And they are a way of knowing that i am providing something that i believe in, rather than something that might actually compound the extant problem.
Thou shalt not steal. But that is exactly what i'm going to do with your idea - what a wonderful way to be able to share with someone in need. A food gift card, from any food place or grocery store is an excellent alternative to giving cash which, unfortunately, might be used for other than basic survival needs. No, i don't consider it stealing - just sharing your good deed, and thank you for telling us this tip.

It's a shame the young man wasn't there anymore when you came back, but it's great you had something to give to the other guy, that was a wonderful idea and very generous of you. Thanks for sharing this! :)
Exchanging money leave one at the same stage whereas exchanging ideas leaves one richer. Thanks for sharing your idea and making kindness acts richer.
That is a great idea to have gift cards to give to people.
What a beautiful idea! Thanks very much for sharing your experience, for your kindness and the inspiration. Blessings and smiles to you!
Thank you so much for this idea. I carry some one dollar bills in my car to give out, but i hadn't thought about a mcdonalds gift card!
How kind of you and thoughtful. What a great idea. Many blessings to you.
