Why really convinces people to support international aid?

Do people support aid to poor countries because they think is in their own personal and national self-interest? Or because they think it is the right thing to do?

Differently put: what stops people from supporting the less fortunate? Fear that their money will be wasted, or do they just not care?

What was the last time you donated to an international cause? What made you do it?
