I don’t know about you, but doing something good always makes me feel a little better about myself. Whether it’s making a donation, volunteering, or community work, people all over our wonderful city and the world give generously every day out of the pure goodness of their heart. Think about it. How often do you see somebody holding the door open for someone? Or giving a complete stranger a few cents? Living in the City of Big Shoulders I see it all the time, we look out for our own. And now to all of those random do-gooders out there I say: what goes around, comes around.
A recent study released by the Corporation for National and Community Service http://www.nationalservice.gov showed that there is a distinct connection between volunteering and good health. Volunteering and doing good for others actually leads to lower depression rates, higher functional ability, and even decreased risk of heart attack, according to the report. If you need more motivation to do good, here it is.By giving back you will be rewarded physically and mentally.
Now that you know doing good for others is beneficial to your health, it’s time to take action! Start by finding extra stuff around the house that you can donate to enrich the lives of others, then go to http://zealousgood.com/ and donate! Once your in kind donation has been received we will send you a certificate stating what you donated and how it will be used in the chosen charity http://zealousgood.com/charities. For maximum effectiveness, hang it up somewhere you see everyday. The daily reminder of your charity donation will put you on the path to a long, healthy, and charitable life!
