This is truly moving. Thanks for showing us how we can all be better people. Addressing an issue that almost all of us can relate to is so necessary. You don't have to win lotto/ lottery to spend on others.

The appreciation, or lack of it was not addressed, but I think it also would affect the outcome.
I volunteer a lot, and find that my personal feeling is certainly influenced by the appreciation or lack of it.

True IF the individual with money already has enough to meet basic needs
My health insurance will not cover all the physical therapy I need. I finally received social security benefits, so I am going to pay for my own additional therapy. And THAT makes me happy, I think that's a circumstance that this talk doesn't address -- of course it makes one happy to do for others, but if one lacks for something of vital importance -- basic food, clothing, shelter, medical care -- I would disagree that one should give away money they truly need.
I have already also given some to charity, but I believe that's more of a duty. The idea of helping someone else is of somewhat less importance to me at this time than the idea of getting the care I need to return to a more normal life.
