    Yes, and what is wrong with that? It's my money and this is charity and I damn well give it to the person that I believe deserves of my money. Just because I am rich doesn't mean that I have to give it all to someone I don't care much about. The fact that I turned up and gave something and that would save some lives is already commendable.

    As INXS asked, what is the line in $ value between generosity and stinginess when given to humanitarian aid?

    yes and the people at the funeral would justifiably make a comment or two. Perhaps it would have been more respectful not to have gone to the funeral do you not think?

    You asked I gave. If you were in charge of China what would you give? I have given my answer.
