Is that low or high? I'd say it's probably ok, most people can't afford to
give much anyway, with mortages, student loans, children, etc. Only the
wealthy could give thousands and still pay the phone bill.

Huh? This can't possibly be right. People could choose a cheaper mortgage, fewer children, etc. In a world with a median income of ~$3000, someone who makes ten times that much surely can choose to spend thousands on charity if they want to.
