Changing the World through Giving
"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give". Winston Churchill.
In December 26th's article on Positive Psychology News Daily, it was appropriate to take a look at the positive psychology research behind giving, and the related subjects of altruism, kindness and empathy.
If you're in Secondary/High School teaching, please do take a look at G-Nation, which works with young people aged 11-16 in the UK to show them how they can change the world by giving. And there's research which shows that acts of kindness can boost your well-being too. A no-brainer, as my old boss would say!
