Is it *really* possible to do a COMPLETELY altrustic act?


I'm asking if one can do something good and yield *absolutely*, positively NO benefit - no "warm fuzzies", no "earned" place in Heaven (yes, I understand the whole "it's grace, not earned" thing. Ahhh! Even better - or playing with fire, perhaps. Did even Jesus (for Christians) or any analogous or real (for too many other faiths to list) saviour not make the greatest sacrifice - if He in fact knew he'd be sitting at God's side after the crucifixion? Does one have to expect - or even GET - NO benefit for an act to be completely selfless? Does any reward diminish the good deed's worth?
