Say a society has an expected charity expectation. For example, when becoming aware of kids who are dying (A), you're expected to give money to help provide them nutrients and keep them alive. However, say there's someone who recently did something minuscule, for example, put change in a cancer-for-kids jar (B). They decide that the small action of charity they once did (B) covers for not giving money to the dying kids (A). What is this effect called? The effect, essentially, is that when someone does something small, they think it covers for a general purpose (when it really doesn't). Is their a name for this?
