1/2 Off!

A new poll is launched today that is inspired by a U.S. Bureau of Labor survey. The study found that the poor—those making an average of $10,531 a year—give 4.3 percent to charity. The wealthiest Americans however make an average of $158,888 a year, but only give 2.1 percent of their income to charity. The wealthy give at a rate of less than ½ of the poor. In your opinion why is this so?

* The wealthy usually do not associate with or know many poor people.
* The poor by nature are more empathetic and feel for others in want.
* The wealthy generally live isolated and are unaware of social concerns.
* The poor send money home helping other less fortunate family members.
* All of the above.
* None of the above.
