WATCH THE SCIENTIFIC EFFECTS OF GIVING IN ACTION

GIVING + ROUTINE = LONG TERM BENEFITS

Repeat, Repeat, Repeat.

A daily giving habit is more powerful than one big give

GIVING CHANGES THE WORLD WITH THE RIPPLE EFFECT

Giving triggers a chain reaction of more giving spreading happiness all over the world

RECIPIENTS PAY IT FORWARD

Studies have found that people benefiting from an act of giving are motivated to give to someone else – researchers call this “upstream reciprocity” but many of us call this phenomenon “paying it forward.”

GIVING QUICKLY SPREADS AND MULTIPLIES AS PEOPLE SEE IT IN ACTION

Researchers have also found that givers inspire observers to behave generously later – so one give can influence hundreds of onlookers to give. What started as a ripple soon turns into a wave of giving!

THE RIPPLE EFFECT OF ONE GIVE IS POSITIVELY WORLD CHANGING

As givers multiply and the daily gives add up, it collectively makes a huge, positive impact on communities of people, animals and our environment.
