Session II: Article Discussion

1. What does "sending money with no strings attached" mean? What's the result of the research in the article? Have you ever donated money to charity or specific organizations?

2. How do you make sure the donation is used in efficient ways to help vulnerable groups? Do you have the experience of helping poor people without giving them money directly?

3. Have you ever met or heard any fake beggars? Some people think being a beggar is a professional job, like an actor or a magician, doing some performances to cheat you out of your money. Do you agree?
