You happen upon a homeless guy with a little girl. They're dressed in shabby but clean clothes. He has a sign that reads 'Hungry. Please help'. The last thing of interest about them is that you spy a meth pipe dangling around the guy's neck. What do you do?

I give them money. I hope he doesn't spend it on drugs
