This quote has been used so many times. People have brainwashed people to believe it out of context. It is sad.
Have you ever considered who happens to be able to donate huge amounts to charities? Yes, of course, it is those who have a lot of money. When you live paycheck to paycheck, you might find yourself donating here and there, but you can't deny that you aren't feeling like you're changing the world in a HUGE way.
MONEY is simply a tool, like a car which helps you travel from point A to point B. Like a coat which you wear when you feel cold. Like a cell phone, which you carry to stay in touch with your work or family or friends. Money is a tool which allows you to achieve your dreams or hopes when you use it correctly.
Money can't buy happiness, but neither can poverty.
