Happy Philanthropy Day!
You may have heard the Alice Hocker quote, “Your greatness is not what you have, it’s what you give.”, and it couldn’t be more relevant than on Philanthropy Day.
Philanthropy is the spirit of giving without the expectation of reward. You might think it is a difficult concept for humans to grasp, but it is scientifically proven through MRI’s that the act of giving releases the neurotransmitter, dopamine. This is what is known as the feel good chemical!
Humans feel good when they help other people. Whether giving money, time, kindness, support, or advice – it is the giving that is important.
On this day, I challenge you to find a charity with a cause you care deeply about and express your love, in anyway you can.
