Well we already know how dashingly good-looking, considerate and wonderful we Kiwis are…but did you know that we us Kiwis have been rated as some of the most generous people in the world?
We were rated according to how much time and money we gave and devoted to charities. According to Dennis McKinlay from UNICEF, one fourth of New Zealanders donate their time and money to support developing countries.
Looks like it was quite a decent chunk of time and quite a few pretty pennies. We share the ranks of awesomely generous people with that Aussies as the top givers in the global index.
We should take a moment to pat ourselves on the back and keep up the giving. Keep being givers and make a big difference on the global scale.
