If it makes one feel good to do something for others, that is "charity" and does not meet Ayn Rand's definition of "altruism". Ayn Rand's definition of altruism includes not wanting to perform the altruistic act and performing it anyway even though it makes one feel bad to do so. I don't know the Russian word for "altruism" but that is probably where Ayn Rand got her definition.
