The Charities Aid Foundation in London published its annual world giving index last week, and it turns out that the world was more generous in 2012 than it was in the previous year.
The Foundation crowned the United States the world’s most generous nation, up from fifth place last year.
Sri Lanka appeared in the Top 20 as the 10th Most Giving Nation in the World.
The report is based on Gallup polls involving 135 countries and measures three factors,
Who said they donated the most money to charity?
Who said they volunteered the most time?
Who said they helped out strangers most often?
The U.S. was only 13th when it came to donating money, but third place in giving time and first place when it came to helping out someone in need.
So what country is the least charitable? Well, according to the report, that distinction goes to Greece, and while economic troubles in Greece were rampant in 2012, this report proves it’s not always about the money. Even Syria made the top ten list for helping out a stranger.
