Australia - we're a nation of givers

According to a report by the British-based Charities Aid Foundation, AUSTRALIA is a nation of givers, tying equal first with our cousins across the Tasman, New Zealand as the countries whose citizens are most willing to donate their time and money to charity.

The report found 70 per cent of Australians had given money to a charity, and 38 per cent had donated their time, in the month before they were surveyed. Almost two-thirds had given assistance to a stranger.
