London Daily Mail: Beggars Make Up To $200 A Day

I can believe it. I hike twice a day along several miles of Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood, California. The final 20 miles of nationwide Route 66, runs from downtown Los Angeles to the oceanfront beaches in the city of Santa Monica.

With growing numbers of homeless in this area, I encounter at least a dozen beggars daily. In some locations, such as posh restaurants, bars and supermarkets, they get steady handouts of dollar bills and more.

Advice: Because many street people have mental and addiction problems, don’t hand out money to them. Too often it goes for drugs and alcohol. You’ll help much more effectively by contributing to your local Red Cross, Salvation Army and other agencies that help the homeless. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6791637/Homeless-beggars-making-200-DAY-reveals-ex-soldier-says-11lb-streets.html#comments
