Why Helping Others?
Doing things for others - whether small, unplanned acts or regular volunteering - is a powerful way to boost our own happiness as well of those around us. The people we help may be strangers, family, friends, colleagues or neighbors. They can be old or young, nearby or far away.
Giving isn't just about money, so you don't need to be rich. Giving to others can be as simple as a single kind word, smile or a thoughtful gesture. It can include giving time, care, skills, thought or attention. Sometimes these mean as much, if not more, than financial gifts.
Help Others in Need.
We don't live in a perfect world, and there's never going to be a perfect time to give—but there are always people out there in need of help.
More Meaning to Your Life.
When you donate money to charity, you create opportunities to meet new people who believe in the same causes that inspire you.
Motivate Friends and Family.
When you let your friends and family know of your charitable donations, they may find themselves more motivated to undertake their own efforts to give.
