"You won't help anyone by..." Brazil Local Custom Tip by martinelli
Brazil Local Customs: 174 reviews and 153 photos
You won't help anyone by giving money on the streets. Is someone begging for money? You'd better buy him a hotdog. Specially in the touristic places, misery has become a job, an industry that never stops growing. Many mothers force their children (age 4, 5, maybe younger) to go work in the strees (begging, selling candies) and use the money they make to drink. So, if you want to help, get the begger some food. At least you'll know it won't be misused.
