Charity in the United States

An interesting story in the Associated Press about charitable giving in the US:

Americans gave nearly $300 billion to charitable causes last year, setting a new record…  Americans give twice as much as the next most charitable country, according to a November 2006 comparison done by the Charities Aid Foundation. In philanthropic giving as a percentage of gross domestic product, the U.S. ranked first at 1.7 percent. No. 2 Britain gave 0.73 percent, while France, with a 0.14 percent rate.

What do you think this says about the “American heart”?
