JBOM: Open House, Jewish-style part 2

Continuing from my previous posts: R' Twerski adds that it's not enough to simply give tzedakah to a person in need; one must also comfort that person. "His spirit may be crushed by his need to beg, and it is a mitzvah of the highest order to elevate his spirit and give him tzedakah with a pleasant attitude."

So, for those of you keeping score at home, that's tip #2: don't just give money, give comfort.
