The United States contributes the most amount of charity in the world then all other countries combined?

Yet some countries like France and others have the audacity to criticize us because the contributions percentages are less than other countries. What do you guys think about that?

It's like that bible quote where Jesus praises a poor woman who gave what is seeminly an insignificant amount to all of the rich pharisees, but to the woman is alot. Jesus says "she has given more than anyone here"

Anyway I don't agree with it. It doesn't matter that the woman is sacrificing more by giving what little she has. The fact remains that the larger contribution, for whatever reason, stands to have a more siginificant impact.

What do you think? Are we Americans Stingy as some people think?
