THE POWER OF ALTRUISM
Volunteering doesn’t just benefit others. A growing body of research finds that volunteering reaps huge social, emotional and physical benefits for the volunteer.
People who volunteer lead longer, healthier and more purposeful lives.
Volunteers report significant improvements in their mental health, along with other socio-emotional benefits ranging from a greater feeling of productivity to increased social activity, and a greater sense of well-being.
And don’t forget about that wonderful chemical, Oxytocin, the natural, feel-good love hormone.
