Life is not like the movies. I value my privacy and the safety of my family over some Hollywood notion of what charity is. I prefer to give anonymously. I do not need to look into the eyes of those I help.
My family and I used to cook huge dinners for Thanksgiving and go around and pass out plates to those who were hungry. We haven't done it in a while since things have been crazy and we haven't had a proper Thanksgiving in years, but if we can, we try to help.
