What do you do to help others?

Doing things for others is one path to a happier, more fulfilling life. Giving activates the areas of the brain associated with pleasure, social connection and trust.

What can you do to give of your time, your energy, your ideas to move along that path to happiness?

“Do your little bit of good where you are; those little bits together overwhelm the world.” – Desmond Tutu
