When we give to others it activates the areas of the brain associated with pleasure, social connection and trust.
Altruistic behavior releases endorphin’s in the brain and boosts happiness for us as well as the people we help. Studies have shown that giving money away tends to make people happier than spending it on themselves. Just a thought but just imagine for just one minute; for $30.00 a month if half of us took one child, what would the world be like?
One way I found to increase my self worth, to counteract all the negative issues that had plagued my life, I was looking to perform an act or a way to put meaning back in my life, something positive to reflect on. So I decided to sponsor a child, which gave me the great satisfaction, I never felt before, just to see the difference I was making, to receive information on how I made a family’ & child’s life whole again. A little girl and her family who was in need of medical attention that they could not afford, who never had the luxury of one thing we take for granted everyday and don’t give a second thought, clean drinking water. Her letter’s told me of how terrible it was for them, her father working seven days a week, to receive a weekly pay check of $10.00, Canadian to support his family. Living in an environment and community really worst than what we would consider not fit for our dog to live in. She was so grateful to me, and for the extra money, she made me feel like a god, now able to get medical treatment, clean drinking water and better living conditions to mention a few.
So for a small monthly payment you can too give a child and their family a better life in an underdeveloped country, a true since of respect for yourself, if helping others is within your realm.
