There’s a multitude of reasons why charitable giving is always a positive! Did you know that participants who donate, according to a study from NIH, donating even $100 activates pleasure centers in the brain?
Not only that, charitable giving brings more meaning to ones life, helps others in need and sets a strong example for children to follow!
With that said, why not donate and also wear your best gown or tux?
