Target should allow homeless people to beg for money outside of their stores, just like they allow school groups and charities to do. Folks leaving the store could hand out a loaf of bread or a ration of dried beans or a package of bologna to the poor people down on their luck asking for help.
And some formerly homeless people who are now doing well, who had "Been There/Done That" could even hand over the poor homeless person a case of beer and a carton of cigarettes as well. Some folks who were feeling particularly genrous could hand over a couple of twenties to the homeless person begging and say "You Know, I Decided That instead Of giving To the Salvation Army this Year, That i Am Going To Give You This Money Instead!" Some of the customers could even ask the homeless beggar for their clothing sizes and go buy them some new clothes and a warm winter coat and hat and scarves and gloves. many of the homeless are forced to wear ill-fitting clothes in strange mix matched colors and ill fitting shoes from thrift stores and end up looking like clowns because of it. Some Target customers could buy some really good food for the homeless people, stuff that they like to eat, rather than the ration of dried beans and bread and bologna like some folks think they should eat.
I would be glad to see that the poor homeless person begging outside of target could get the help that they need from the community. maybe even a nice person would take them in under their wing and give them a room to stay in their home and/or give them employment. Maybe some folks would even invite the poor beggar to go shopping with them so that they could try on and pick out some clothes for themselves and so that they could pick out some food and other camping gear that they may need. Target, Please at least allow the Homeless people to beg for help in front of your stores during the Christmas Season.
Tell the Salvation Army that, due to their selfish behavior, that they will no longer be allowed to ring their bell outside of their stores during the Holidays, but that actual homeless people in need will be replacing them. Thank You Target for your consideration.
