Why You Should Take Part in #Do1Give Day

April 28, 2022, will mark the 5th annual #Do1Give day. Why should you take part in this event? This is one day per year where we ask every person in the world to participate in one act of giving to create a world of happiness. One act, by everyone in the world, could create a tsunami of kindness that will make everyone happy around the globe. #Do1Give is your chance to participate and be part of the magic that is giving.

Small Acts of Giving Makes Us Happier

When we give to a person, the planet, or an animal, we feel happier. The recipient also feels happier and anyone who witnesses the act of giving is happier. Science has proved that neurological and hormonal changes happen within our bodies when we give that create happiness.

D – a surge of dopamine makes us feel good

O – oxytocin increases

S – seratonin levels increase

E – endorphins kick in to give us the “helper’s high” feeling

A DOSE of happiness is created with each small act of giving. Imagine the rush of happiness felt worldwide on #Do1Give Day when hundreds of thousands of people feel the love created through giving.

Giving Can Happen Anywhere

Whether at school, at home or at work, you can make giving happen. Giving creates a positive social environment wherever you are participating. Think of the people around you and how you can positively affect their lives through a small act of giving.
