The impoverished man who gives away $5, but only has 1,000 to his name, gave but 0.5%; however, he has only $995 left for himself.
This makes it by far the greater personal sacrifice. True giving can not be measured by the benefit to the receiver, but only by the sacrifice made by the giver.
He who is destitute yet giveth still, shall be the world's greatest philanthropist.
