Eve is not a hypocrite. She helped at home, on volunteer house-builds and with the kids’ homework when she was here, & if she likes the people she works with overseas (romantically or otherwise), that doesn’t make her contribution less meaningful for the people in desperate need.
If you have charities of your own, that is fine. But many don’t look outside their own life unless someone brings it up. Plus, the punchlines may not be to your taste this week, but they are still there in this comic.
I don’t think Eve wants Holly to be a saint. I think she wants her to be a well-rounded, thoughtful person. Holly needs a little help thinking of others’ problems, which will put her own in perspective.
