Sometimes, for some people. Not for everyone

I guess there can be. If someone is vain, it can be a part of anything they do.

To some extent, unless the charity is given anonymously. Then the giver is not looking for recognition from others.

There can be, but it's easy to be cynical about it, until you are desperate for it, and it comes your way.

Of course there is.

As with anything, there can be. But it's not necessarily so.

As a person who often posts on social media about being charitable, this feels like an accusation laughing out loud.

It is hard to encourage others to be charitable by example without seeming at least a little bit vain, I guess("Look what I did!").

I don't think it's vanity, but being charitable does make me feel good. My mental health benefits from it. My fiance jokes that it is how I buy happiness.

Sure why not
