    1. No they don’t. I’d say most of the people I ran into generally did ask for change — much easier than $5. If I still had the $5, they’d get it.

  1. Just to add in Islam we have the saying when you give some one some thing you will not get poor because the more you give the more you will get.

  2. What a nice idea! I try to remember to tithe 10% my income and keep it in an envelope which is for “gifts”. If I give to some one on the street collecting or something I take it back from there, but to advantage of this for me it it tends to build up so when I hear of someone somewhere who needs help I can send a larger amount (since these needs tend to be international larger amounts are more practical).
