Happiness from giving

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,  a 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.

Scientific studies show that helping others boosts happiness. It increases life satisfaction, provides a sense of meaning, increases feelings of competence, and improves our mood and reduced stress. It can help to take our minds off our own troubles too.

Kindness towards others is being the glue, which connects individual happiness, with a wider community and societal well being. Giving to others helps us connect with people and meets one of our basic human needs - relatedness.

Kindness and caring also seem to be contagious. When we see someone do something kind or thoughtful, or we are on the receiving end of kindness, it inspires us to be kinder to ourselves. In this way, kindness spreads from one person to the next, influencing the behavior of people who never saw the original act. Kindness really is the key to creating a happier, more trusting local community.

This video touched our heart for we can relate to the emotion, love and happiness experience during our unconditional giving. 
To our  donors, benefactors, supporters, well wishers and volunteers this video is for you.
For all your kind, giving you too get to experience emotion, love and happiness.

Thank You.
