Feeling good about giving to charity

Mourning

Many of you probably remember watching the show Friends. In the fifth season, there was an episode where Phoebe was trying to do a good deed that she didn’t feel good about. In the end, she tried to give money during a telethon to PBS, which she hated. The donation got Joey on television, however, which then made her feel good.

According to a new study, feeling good about making a donation is a fairly regular occurrence. There are differences between giving a bequest and volunteering, but generally speaking, brain scans show that you will feel better about yourself and the world if you give.
