Most charitable nations in the world
http://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda...-the-world

It's really a shame that incentivizing people with non-falsifiable claims of intangible rewards, often preying on their deepest fears of the unknown, seems to be the most effective way of getting them to be charitable.

Remember, the FSM loves you... but He will love you even more if you're super generous and caring, and don't plunder all the booty for yourself.
(Don't think too much into that veiled threat. Just let your basic human instincts take over, and act upon them; then let your brain convince you that you didn't do it for some ultimately self-serving reason. Shy )

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

^Yes, and they won't even guilt you into forking over 10% of your income for administration fees and building maintenance costs Smile

I think it's important to realize exactly what they were measuring.

Quote:Another reason is that it's not the total amount of money given that the index is measuring. It's the act of giving itself, in the form of three specific charitable behaviors. The Gallup World Poll asked people from 145 countries: In the last month, have you donated money to a charity; volunteered time to an organization; helped a stranger or someone you didn't know who needed help? When the results to all three questions were averaged, Myanmar came out on top.

And I think as our (USA) population increases in age that this number will significantly increase as older more educated retirees find their happiness in giving more of their time and not necessarily their money.

Unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the trend. More people of retirement age are continuing to work - because they can't afford retirement...

Thanks for the citation. And for the younger crowd:

Quote:Overall, Millennials are much more optimistic than their Baby Boomer predecessors now nearing retirement. That’s partly because Millennials are under no illusions that they’ll be able to rely on any of the Social Security benefits they have paid into, but believe that they still have time to save up on their own.

My concern would be they
Quote:believe that they still have time to save up on their own
which I don't believe will happen.

In the UK we have people who stop you in towns or who occasionaly will come and knock on your door.

They are known as Chuggers (Charity muggers)

This doesnt help with their reputation.....

Seems like there is plenty of money to be made being charitable.

I feel so much, and yet I feel nothing.
I am a rock, I am the sky, the birds and the trees and everything beyond.
I am the wind, in the fields in which I roar. I am the water, in which I drown.
