Show generosity to your community and the Earth.
A study found that people are more willing to donate when a charity appeals to the benefits the donors will receive than to altruism.
Researchers mailed postcards encouraging randomly assigned families to donate money to charity. The postcard either highlighted the benefits to others or the benefits to themselves. Those who received the postcard promoting self-benefits were 6.6 percent more likely to give and gave 23 percent more on average.
Most of us believe if we earned a bit more money, we'd have more free money to give. But the wealthier people get, the more expenses they accumulate, meaning there is not that much "spare" income.
The result is that we often pass the buck, thinking that the wealthier people, or our future, richer selves, will have the capacity to give.
Generous people report being happier, healthier, and more satisfied with life than those who don’t give.
Generosity produces within us the sense that we are shaping the world around us into a healthier one.
