Help your parents, spouse, children and other people at home who need help, first and then help others in need. If we do not help our own people at home but try to help others, such charity is meaningless,

Most people (if they think about this at all), think that people grow up being charitable because of the way they were brought up by their parents. New research soon to be released from a study of college students taking non-profit and philanthropy courses across 34 universities in three Midwestern states, found that might not be the case. In this forthcoming study 51 percent of students surveyed said they never discussed their parents' volunteer work or philanthropy with them and 37 percent relayed that they only briefly discussed it. Only 13 percent of students reported discussing their parents' volunteer work or philanthropy in any kind of in depth manner. But yet these same students were intrigued and curious enough to enroll in a course where students would be learning about philanthropy by granting funds to local non-profits.

'Charity begins at home, and justice begins next door.' Charles Dickens (1812-1870), British novelist. Tigg, in Martin Chuzzlewit, ch. 27 (1844)Interestingly, if that is the genuine source, then it's a couplet, an et-et, just as you suggest.So, it seems Dickens wasn't the source of that fatuous quotation, but those who truncated it for the sake of their own convenience

Pay yourself first, do what you like to do or save for yourself first then spend or pay bills.
