Another line of thinking that may reduce charitable giving is the perception (right or wrong) that anyone who needs additional charity must not be making good use of the government resources that already exist to help them.

(A bad side effect of collective generosity is that most of us are so far removed from the delivery of these services, we have no idea how they work in reality...)

On the bright side, when it comes to volunteering our time, we may have a smaller number of volunteers here in QC, but the ones we have are just as dedicated as those in the ROC! It'd be interesting to take a closer look at who is volunteering here and see what it is that motivates them to do it. (I suspect they are probably older and/or more religious than average...maybe it's a reflection of our population aging faster than the ROC?)

Happy holidays & thanks again for the thought-provoking articles!
