GIVING FEELS GREAT!
Did you know that the benefits of giving to charities extend far beyond the tax breaks? A study by a University of Oregon professor and his colleagues demonstrated that charitable contributions create a response in the brain that mimics one activated by drugs and other stimuli. This response elicits a surge of dopamine and endorphins that are experienced as “hedonic” and rewarding. Charitable giving can feel pleasurable in the deepest parts of your physiology – more so than a night on the town or a new outfit. Next time you're feeling a little blue, make a donation to one of your favorite causes!
