As I've said, why risk it at all? Are you so attached to your material wealth that you're unwilling to give them all up to feed that poor and homeless?
For Atheists, it is understandable, since they don't have morals (apparently), but if you are aiming to go to heaven, doing every single thing to maximize your chance to pass through the pearly gates is the only sensible thing to do.
Knowing that countless of people starving and living in extreme poverty, to remain unwilling to give up all that savings and excess earnings (and not trusting that God would be the provider in times of need) would be a clear sign of attachment to material wealth no matter how you might rationalize against the virtue of "selflessly helping as many poor people as you can". That one thing that stands between you and God.
