Paul, an example of one who was gung-ho.

…and when James, Peter, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that had been given to me, they gave me and Barnabus the right hand of fellowship, that we should go to the Gentiles and they the circumcised. They desired only that we should remember the poor, the very thing which I also was eager to do. Galatians 2:9, 10 NKJV.

Eager, spoudazo, Strong’s # 4704—to exert oneself, make every effort, give diligence, make haste, and further the cause diligently. Spoudazo combines thinking and acting, planning and producing.

It sees a need and promptly does something about it. The word covers inception, action, and follow through. The believers in Jerusalem were known to be poor (Romans 15:26).
