So you wouldn't spend your own money as you see fit? It's not mine, yours or everyone else's problem to give everyone a helping hand. Sure it's ok every now and then but puhhhlease we only live one short life.

It's nice that you want to be charitable though but just remember that everyone's life wasn't destined to be the same.
