PHOTOS: World's most generous countries

Hold your heads up high...

We've been deemed the second most generous nation in the world.

The Charities Aid Foundation has published its annual index of 145 countries, measuring the proportion of people who've given to charity, volunteered their time or who'd helped a stranger in the past month.

Top of the world is Myanmar.

New Zealand is second equal with the United States, three places ahead of Australia.
