Many of us are taught to ignore homeless people. We are told they will just spend the money on drugs or alcohol. But would you ignore a homeless man and his child? Would you walk right past them and think nothing of it?

Colby Persin had the same question. He decided to do a social experiment on the streets of New York. He wanted to know the type of homeless person New Yorkers would be more generous to a man who asked to feed his family or a man who asked for drugs.

When he pretended to be a drug addict he got several donations, however, people were not as generous when he sat on the streets with his daughter, asking for help. The only person who seemed to care was another homeless woman. See the incredible thing she does that proves sometimes those with the least amount to give end up giving far more than anyone else.
