Why do we record ourselves helping others?

Spent the weekend in Atlanta for the Joel Osteen, Night of Hope. Walking back to the hotel, I noticed someone giving a couple of dollars to a homeless person. I then noticed a person next to him recoding the whole thing. After “donating” the person looks at the camera, smiles and throws a peace sign. They then place the camera in front of the man who just got a couple of dollars.

Was this really necessary? I am sure the person receiving the money is grateful, but I can’t stop thinking he would want some dignity as well. PJSLB.
