UNICEF Greeting Cards

Saw some UNICEF greeting cards at a store yesterday. The packaging had the following text on it
UNICEF has helped more underprivileged children than any other humanitarian organization in the world.
Okay. Good. But considering this was on an item up for sale and to an extent amounted to advertising:

1. Does helping more children somehow make you 'better'?
2. Do you mean to imply that I should not contribute to other humanitarian organizations because they help lesser number of children?
3. Is humanatarianism a competition? Why are you comparing yourself to others?
