Lending a hand to a stranger is more than just a good deed. In fact, according to research consulting company Gallup, a culture of willingness to help is a strong pointer of positive economic features, comprising GDP and long-term unemployment.

Myanmar

A country of strong Buddhist tradition speaks much of the generosity of the residents here. The concept of karma in Theravada Buddhism, the school of Buddhism most prominent in Southeast Asia plays a big role on why the people here are generous and giving. As part of their belief, people donate food and money to monks and monasteries.

However, it was only until recently that there has been an effort to start donating to orphanages in such organized effort. In addition to their feat as the number one generous country, Burma was recently named the world's most friendly country in the InterNations Expat Insider 2015 survey. More than 96 percent of the respondents rated the Burmese positively in their cordiality toward foreigners.

The United States

Ranked as the second most generous country in the world, giving varies in type in the US culture. It is always dependent on whether the area is rural, urban, or suburban. Naomi Hattaway, originally from Nebraska and founder of the I Am Triangle international cultural group for people, who have lived abroad, has experienced each of them. In a report of BBC, she was quoted saying that there are so several NGOs and non-profits in the Washington DC Metro, but as you extend to distant suburbs of the area, one would frequently hear people say that they wanted to volunteer but had no idea how.

In the tiny town of Lucketts in Virginia however, she found that the spirit of philanthropy, of charitable acts, and of giving, was something that almost seemed binding for most residents. When someone would share a need, the residents would jump to help. This is a trait has been passed down for generations.

Australia

Ensuring everyone has an equal chance to prosper is what the locals call giving everyone a fair go, is a core trait of the Australian culture. This is one reason why Australia ranked third as the most generous country in the world. People have great respect for someone who prospers while remaining humble and genuinely true. People are attached to their roots and helpful of others in their labors. In particular, Melbourne strong sense of community spirit and most often conducts events that donate millions to local and worldwide causes.
