Perth, Australia newspaper notes that Western Australia has lowest giving stats in nation, "even though WA is one of the richest states."
Local philanthropists leapt to WA's defence, saying the results were limited, because they relied only on credit card, debit card, direct debit, BPAY and Eftpos donations. They did not account for gifts from cheques or ancillary funds, and they stressed that "giving" was increasing in ways not quantifiable in a survey. -- Paul Lampathakis, Perth Herald Sun
