We give, we volunteer, we help strangers. As exciting as it is to see the rest of the world take off in increasing their ability to help others, the U.S. is still playing a strong  part. 

According to a survey by the Charities Aid Foundation, of those Americans interviewed, 20% had volunteered their time in the past month and 30% given money. And while we don\’t compare to Liberia (76%), we still help strangers at a solid rate of 65%.
