It is more of a rule to me than just an act of kindness. Whenever someone asks me for money to buy food, I don't give them money (ever) but I go to the closest supermarket and get something to eat for that person. It can be a bag with milk, Bread, cheese and water, or just a meal or whatever I can afford and consider to be of a basic need. My grandma always said "if they ask you for a couple of euros to buy Bread, buy them Bread". I Hope you guys feel like doing The same when possible!
