Do1Give Day in Action – A Local Recipe Contributes To Global Happiness!

This is how happiness happens. Do1Give Day literally spread all over the world on April 19, 2018, with people giving to others to increase global happiness! The emails we received at 365give were heart warming and inspirational. The people who participated, our global hereos!

In a small town in Brazil, English students were inspired to participate in this global giving event held by 365give. They decided that their 647 gives that day would be sharing cookies using a popular local recipe. This beautiful layered cookie called an ‘alfajores’  sandwiches dulce de leche (caramel) in between thin cookie layers which  are then covered (or should I say smoothered) with chocolate. Their teacher Giseli Corrêa worked with her students to create 647 cookies (okay maybe a few more as I am sure they needed to past a taste test first) and spend the day visiting local businesses, public service offices, friends and family as their contribution to Do1Give Day. That rocks!

Giseli and her English Class (all of these students are learning a second language) created a video to share their Do1Give Day recipe for Global Happiness. They took this opportunity to speak in English as part of their class, Giseli added some great music and Voila! here is their video showing you how to make DO1Give Day Alfajores!

Use their recipe for inspiration when completing your weekly giving idea list. Or use a favorite local recipe of your own. If anything, use this video to inspire your daily giving to increase your own happiness, and that of others.
