I don't have the means right now to do so, and if I did I am not sure of what I would do, at least in regards to poverty. Honestly, poverty is a very complex issue that can not be solved by throwing money at it, it is a product of societal ills that allow vast poverty to occur. I do not have the answers to fix those either, let alone the means.
I can spot the issues though, as many can. Unfortunately I am unable to speak of anything I do contribute, so yes I am being hypocritical to some degree, but it is good to have a persistent and annoying voice shouting at people.
