REMINDER: Oops, I forgot! I'll JUST look up the definition of Charity | Merriam-Webster

Listening to an NPR broadcast of an expose on the disposal of old electronics, it occurs to me, that TOO MANY PEOPLE NEGATIVELY JUDGE THE GIVING OF LUXURY ITEMS TO OTHERS OF LESSER MEANS.

I respectfully refer you to the definitions of the Word, CHARITY, which includes the notions of Generosity, Helpfulness, Relief and last but not least Leniency in Judgement.

Here in America, aka 'the Land of Punishment,' we have been brainwashed into creating an alarmingly LARGE number of criminals out of the great mass of common people. These members of the commonweal expend a tremendous amount of time and energy in order to create for their families the opportunities to advance the next generation.
