I had a kid ask me for a dollar one day when I was leaving the store. I said No right away. When I got in my car though, I started thinking as I drove home. Went back and asked him what he wanted it for. He said to eat. His mom was a crack addict etc. I asked him if he wanted to make a few bucks. Long story short, I took him home and put him to work in my garden. He was clueless about gardens, but willing to learn. He is now a big helper, wiser in gardening ,and a bit richer and fed. I don't feel robbed now. I feel like I actually gave something and it helped.

i don't donate to big charities either. however if i see a jar at a service station or a place like that for a kid with cancer or a family who had a house fire i drop in a couple bucks. i would feel very selfish and like a complete scum bag if i didn't, and you should too.
