If a Middle-Class person gputs $5 into a Salvation Army Bucket, and a Millionaire outs $20 into the same bucket, which one made the larger sacrifice for the charity?

Good Point, Keith Sutherland1. I never meant to imply that a person who is designated as a millionaire is necessarily a bad one. I only used their assumed wealth as a perspective for my question.
Great responses from both of you, from a religious and humanity perspective.
I would like to make one other important but less palatible point and that is the ongoing arguement over taxing the rich and the poor using the same tax calculations
PAPA-BEAR-Good to hear from you.
And, Yes, it is all about "real people" helping "real people" isn't it?
Cool perspective Civil War Bob. You made me laugh, after reading some of the other super-serious comments.
Thanks for the Smile and taking the time to read and answer my question.
Well Said, Pamlia.
Have agreat day.
Sorry, Tom,You missed the point of my question. The rich man giving the same percentage as the poor man is not nearly as impressive because he gave up so much less that would affect his own lifestyle.
That was my point.
