This House Would give Money to Individuals rather than Charities

When people donate money, they often give to charitable organisations (e.g. Children in Need). However, money from these donations does not usually go directly to the individual, since the charity has to pay for staff, events, and other running costs. The alternative is giving money to individuals (e.g. giving money to a busker or homeless person). This goes directly to the individual but does not provide organized services (e.g. foodbanks or homeless shelters). There is less money given directly to individuals than to charitable organisations overall.
