1.    Wrong charity methods will have adverse results. People who receive too much money will become dissatisfied and become evil, which called "Marginal effect of gratitude" or "the anger of loser." So choose appropriate donees is very important. There is a very important principle of choosing donees:

a. Focus more on giving to those who are temporarily short of money (e.g. people who suffer from disasters), not those who are desperately short of money.

b. An important saying: "One of the major obstacles to true and permanent goodness is undue giving."

c.  Undue giving will lead to two results:

                                          i.         Foster dependency

                                         ii.         could result in moral kidnapping
