Why do you give gifts? Does it come naturally?
There are many benefits of giving to others – it’s a practice of selflessness that allows you to drop focus on whatever might be stressing you. Even if just for a moment, you experience an endorphin high: that feeling you get when the recipient smiles or reacts in thankfulness or joy.
Connectivity is another benefit. Giving to a friend or a family member in a thoughtful way according to their needs or desires allows you to connect on a personal level. How about connecting to strangers? Being part of the global human race is difficult to wrap my mind around, but giving to others across the planet is one way to make that connection real.
Crowdfunding is a direct way to give, connect, and up the endorphins! Not only that, but the campaigns you find in our weekly #FF posts have tangible results.
Give to connect, give to re-direct your energy outward, give to help a director achive a goal. Find your reason and give today! There are so many ways you can push a campaign to it’s completion: financial support, a shout-out on social media, or a re-tweet during TDL’s #FF twitter storm. Thanks for your support! — Sarah
