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.

All true. However, that same 7 year old girl may see him an hour later to drunk to stand up. She needs to be prepared for that potential outcome, also. Along with the possibility of being rebuffed if she offers something other than cash. Mom needs to be ready with something to say that will comfort her.
