I have one more thing to add...

By choosing to help one individual, your daughter could truely make a difference in someone's life. Yes, it's a risk because the money could be used to feed an addiction, but maybe this man is going through a rough time for whatever reason and your daughter's generosity would inspire him to try harder. It could even help to lift some depression. So, while it's a risk, the possible benefits could be amazing. A 7 year old girl walking up to him with $20 could be just the thing he needs to see good in the world.
