    Money does not help anyone, it just indirectly help someone...

    If i give you 1 buck, you can buy a bread, but if i just buy you a bread, doesn't it help you even more without you needing to go buy a bread?

    But if i buy you a bread, then you can't use the 1 buck to buy 2x0.50cents TOTO for this week's 5million... opportunity cost gone...

    (Money is root of all evil...)

    If you give me $1 I'll buy a few fishing hooks and catch fish.

    When I sell enough fish I'll buy a sampan and a fishing net and catch more fishes.

    Then I'll buy a fleet of fishing boats and catch more fishes and turn into a fish wholesaler.

    You will then make me a millionaire and I start to give $1 to more people and help them to make millions.
