    In a second experiment, 101 adults were shown either a neutral video or an emotional video about children in poverty. They were then given 10 fake dollars and told they could give as much as they liked to a stranger. Those who were less religious gave more when they saw the emotional video first.

    If I had seen the emotional video about children in poverty, I would want to give the money to help those children rather than a stranger.
