Im not aware of any study that shows unbelivers are any less charitable than religious people.<quoted text>
What are the atheists doing to help the poor?
"Religion supports nobody. It has to be supported. It produces no wheat, no corn; it ploughs no land; it fells no forests. It is a perpetual mendicant [beggar]. It lives on the labors of others, and then has the arrogance to pretend that it supports the giver." ~Robert G. Ingersoll (Civil War veteran, American political leader, and orator)
