Four Positive Effects of Donating

According to a report done by Atlas of Giving, after a large year of donations in 2014, the outlook for 2019 is majorly decreasing. In fact, the amounts of donations nationwide are likely to decrease by 3.2%.

In today’s blog you will learn four positive effects of donating and giving to charity. Help Others in Need        Although it seems simple, there will never be a perfect time to give. In our mind we must remember there are always people out there in major need of help.

They later found that they were provided with enjoyment and activated pleasure centers in their brain.
