GIVING INCREASES HAPPINESS - IT'S THAT SIMPLE
Giving has a powerful, feel-good effect on your body & mind called the "Helper's High".
Did you know that giving is supposed to feel good?
It’s true! It’s your human nature! Giving makes you happy because it activates the pleasure centers in your brain and body providing a sense of purpose and fulfillment. By giving, you are making a positive impact on someone else’s life, which can boost your mood and overall well-being. In short, giving feels good and can bring happiness to both the giver and receiver. Scientists have named this feeling the “Helper’s High,” and we call it getting your daily DOSE of happiness every day.

WATCH THE SCIENTIFIC EFFECTS OF GIVING:
IT'S HAPPINESS IN ACTION
GIVING + DAILY HABIT =
LONG-TERM BENEFITS FOR YOU AND THE WORLD
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.
