Lady Hyancinth Dysquith has a problem. Although this could probably be classified as a “first world problem”. She wants to find a new charity to become involved with. That sounds easy enough, but her goal doesn’t appear to be helping others quite as much as she wants the increased social status from people knowing that she was giving to charity. Economists call this type of behavior impure altruism.
