Expert Answers

There are a number of people that the Count helps, so perhaps by detailing a few I will be able to answer your question.  One is his former employer, Monseiur Morrel.  Monte Christo pays off his debts and allows his daughter to live a happy life as well thanks to the fact that Morrel tried to intercede on Edmond's behalf.

Another is Peppino, whose life he saved from the pirates and later made his most trusted employee and rewarded him with a life of luxury.

He also helps Max end up with Valentine, an example of his willingness to help people end up with the right things besides just through his great wealth.
