Why Give It Away?
Do you remember eight or nine years ago when our "Win Cash" winner gave away every penny? He used the winnings to fund a charity providing clothing to those in need. It's none of my business, but the winner in question did not strike me as being independently wealthy. I can't help but think he could have used the money for himself. Nevertheless, he chose to give every single cent to help others.
The website Kent-Teach.com offers the article, "Five Benefits of Giving." They begin with a scientific explanation as to why giving feels good. According to Kent-Teach.com, "It has been suggested that when we give to others, the hormone, oxytocin, is released and this induces feelings of warmth, euphoria, and connection to others." This is quickly followed with five far more practical reasons why giving feels so good:
- Giving makes us feel happy
- Giving is good for health
- Giving helps social connection
- Giving evokes gratitude
- Giving is contagious
