When you donate some old item, is it not better Karma to give to a stranger?

In Singapore I owned a six year old toaster oven. My wife insisted on sending it to a poor family in Burma. I asked her can we not just send them $20 so they can buy a new toaster oven rather than spend $40 sending this old one?

I have met a lot of Asian women that think that way.

I guess I am adding practicality to kindness, and they just do not mix???

    Karma? I don't believe in karma. I believe in doing the right thing.

    Giving unneeded things to charity is good. Giving unneeded items to someone you know is also good.

    Spending more money on postage than an item is worth is just stupid, IMHO.
