Why is giving important?
Giving is the source of money, wellness and love. We all know that it is very easy to be forgotten. But the secret of living is giving. That is why the essence of it for Brittany’s Backpack Ministry, is to give hope to others with its MISSION to fulfill the needs of its surrounding communities. Providing food, school supplies and other necessities to the neighborhood and underserved communities.
Why is giving important? Millions of people give to charity on a regular basis to support causes they have faith in, as well as for the positive effect it has on their own lives. So, why is it so gratifying?
Giving makes you socially connected
Your generosity is likely to be reciprocated down the line at some point, sometimes to the person you gave to or someone else. What’s more, it makes you feel closer to those you give to as well as them feel closer to you.
Giving is highly contagious
Your own open-handedness can inspire your nearest and dearest to give to causes they have faith in, and could even bring about a family-wide effort to back a charity or charities that have special significance to you as a group.
Giving can bring you happiness
When we give, our brain triggers pleasure, social connection and trust, creating a warm glow effect.
Giving can transform your perspective
There’s no better way to mimic an act of gratitude than by asking yourself how to give back to the community. Helping others can make you realize how much you have to be grateful for.
Tax exemption aside when donating. You can make a difference in the communities you want to support. Every penny you donate can make a huge difference in the lives of the underserved.
Whatever your faith is for the causes you believe in, you can make a difference. The world of selfless giving is full of happiness and meaningful moments to cherish for a lifetime. Mother Teresa once said “It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
