Helping others through charity brings us happiness

And guess what, the happiness gets multiplied if we help through a non-profit or person ‘we know’ and it results in a social bond. Based on research, since we feel happier donating through a friend, we may even donate more?  Source: International Journal of Happiness and Development   http://goo.gl/3eGneJ

Sharing is caring:  Middle-class households on average donate a larger share of their income to charity while the wealthiest Americans are giving a smaller share of their income to charity.  SOURCE: IRS data  http://goo.gl/uYJiLp

If giving is important to you, make it a line item in your budget:  Rather than rush to make contributions in December, set aside a little bit of money for charitable giving throughout the year. You don’t need to make your contributions then; you can keep the money in a savings account earmarked for charitable giving or in a donor-advised so it’s ready to go when you’re ready. Another benefit of saving early is that you’ll have some money ready to give if you want to help victims of a natural disaster or other emergency.
