6 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN OUR TEAM
1 HELPING DISABLED VETERANS AND FAMILIES WITH DISABILITIES
You will be making a direct impact by helping our wounded warriors and their families. They gave so much to us, so it is time for us to give back to them. Also, so many children are suffering from disabilities. Your donation and help will give children a brighter future. We will adapt their homes to make them feel comfortable, proud, and functional.
2 GIVING TO CHARITY MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD
Donating to charity is a major mood-booster. The knowledge that you’re helping others is hugely empowering and, in turn, can make you feel happier and more fulfilled. Research has identified a link between making a donation to charity and increased activity in the area of the brain that registers pleasure – proving that as the old adage goes, it really is far better to give than to receive.
3 GIVING TO CHARITY STRENGTHENS PERSONAL VALUES
Why we give, a feeling of social conscience was the most widely-given reason to give to charity. Whatever type of charity work they supported, 96% said they felt they had a moral duty to use what they had to help others, a sentiment very much rooted in their personal values and principles.
Having the power to improve the lives of others is, to many people, a privilege, and one that comes with its own sense of obligation. Acting on these powerful feelings of responsibility is a great way to reinforce our own personal values and feel like we’re living in a way that is true to our own ethical beliefs.
4 GIVING IS MORE IMPACTFUL THAN EVER
Many people are concerned that their donations to charity may be reduced by tax or administrative costs, preventing the full amount from reaching the people or causes they really want to help. Thankfully we have very little overhead so most of your donations are going directly to military veterans and families with disabilities and families in need.
There are many other ways to give to charity tax-effectively too, such as by donating straight from your salary before tax is deducted through a payroll giving scheme, donating shares to charity, or leaving a charitable legacy in your Will. These methods of giving ensure your chosen charities benefit as much as possible from your support.
5 GIVING TO CHARITY INTRODUCES YOUR CHILDREN TO THE IMPORTANCE OF GENEROSITY
Sharing the experience of donating to charity with your children shows them from a young age that they can make positive changes in the world. Children naturally love to help others, so nurturing their innate generosity is likely to mean that they grow up with a greater appreciation of what they have, and will carry on supporting charity in years to come.
Starting a tradition of donating to charity with your children is easy – try creating a family donation box that everyone can add to and nominate a family charity each year, involving the children in choosing which causes to support.
6 GIVING TO CHARITY ENCOURAGES FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO DO THE SAME
Your own charitable donations can inspire your nearest and dearest to give to causes important to them, and could even bring about a family-wide effort to back a charity or charities that have special significance to you as a group.
Family giving creates a bond, helping to bolster relationships through a shared goal and raising more money than could otherwise be possible through individual donations. Chances are, many of your family members are already giving to charity, so working together could help you to make even more of a positive impact.
