How Come Not Everyone Wants To Help Schools?

0fbe0663c015389d2ef975ed6e9a473e442 Imagine if every school wish list was -- suddenly -- filled, every query on DonorsChoose.org was already taken care of. 

That's precisely the dilemma facing those who want to give to Kiva, an international microloan effort:  Extra Helping (NYT).  They've stopped taking donations since they have too many already. 

Is it just easier to consider helping those abroad, or are domestic interventions just not as compelling to donors as the whole microloan thing?
