Australia may be better known for its rugged outback and the Great Barrier Reef, but the country also boasts the most generous people in the world. Sixty-four percent of Aussies have helped a stranger in the last month.NEW YORK — Australia and New Zealand shared first place, and the United States tied for fifth, in a first-of-its kind survey ranking 153 nations on the willingness of their citizens to donate time and money to charity.

China ranked near the bottom, barely higher than last-place Madagascar.

The report, released Wednesday by the British-based Charities Aid Foundation, showed striking variations in charitable behavior around the world.

For example, it found that only 4 percent of Lithuanians gave money to charity, compared with 83 percent of people in Malta; 61 percent of people in Turkmenistan did volunteer work, compared with 2 percent of Cambodians.

The overall rankings were a composite of three categories Рthe percentage of people who donated money, donated time and helped a stranger in the month prior to being surveyed.  Click link for photos.

Daily Reflection : Judaism

“God spoke to Moses, saying, “Pinchas (a son of Eleazar and grandson of Aaron the priest) was the one who zealously took up My cause among the Israelites and turned My anger away from them, so that I did not destroy them in My demand for exclusive worship. Therefore, tell him that I have given him My covenant of peace.” (Parshat Pinchas)

Daily Reflection: Quaker

And so I find it well to come
For deeper rest to this still room,
For here the habit of the soul
Feels less the outer world’s control;
The strength of mutual purpose pleads
More earnestly our common needs;
And from the silence multiplied
By these still forms on either side,
The world that time and sense have known
Falls off and leaves us God alone.
~John Greenleaf Whittier~
