Determinism vs. Free will

Can someone explain this to me? I am trying to get my head around it.

For example, say I gave a homeless guy $1. Was it because I was determined to do it or it was my free will to give him that dollar?

I am as confused as a baby at a buffet.

I am not going to debate what a human will decide to do or what not lols. But quantum physics prove that there is no determinism. You can argue the logic of quantum physics but just shut up and calculate.

Were you wearing one of these when you got the urge to give the $1.00? If you were, it was free will. If not, you were manipulated by God-who-knows-what.

Good luck in your future probings...
