I mentioned to someone that I was going to donate to this girl (She's Haitian), and they said "It's nice to help others, but I'd rather help Americans since the US focuses on the problems of other countries and their citizens".

I donated to Katrina, so helping America isn't beyond me. I just help, however I can, where it's needed.

*blinks* What a ridiculous answer. You should feel free to help when and where you can.

It's your money to decide to use how you see fit. Whoever said that seems either loopy and self-centered. There are many countries around the world that need aid MUCH more than we do.

"the US focuses on the problems of other countries and their citizens"

Yeah, and half the time they don't even ask for it. :p

Following the Tsunami, the US pledged its support to the victims.

This would be fine and dandy, until someone pointed out that they were pledging less than basically every other developped nation (and probably some of the developing ones too).

The US quickly increased their designated pledge.
