Going on a holiday to a third world country is better than upgrading your kitchen?

The biggest problem I see in the western world is their consumerism. There is so much waste. They demolish perfectly build houses, kitchens and re-do it.
Instead, if they can re-direct those funds to the needy will be a very beneficial act. If they do not want to donate the money to a third world country, they can go to a third world country for a holiday. Or by the products made in a third world country.
The question I am trying to address is what is the best way to distribute wealth.
