put one's hand in one's pocket

put one's hand in one's pocket
платить, раскошеливаться; тратить деньги

When a man loses his farm, or his stock, or his crop, through no fault of his own, there are poor men who put their hands into their pockets to help him. (H. Lawson, ‘The Romance of the Swag’, ‘Shall We Gather at the River?’) — Когда человек теряет ферму, скот или урожай не по своей вине, всегда найдутся бедняки, которые помогут ему, хотя у них самих пустые карманы.
