Make every day a time of giving

Make every day a time of giving

Giving not only benefits the receiver, it can also be a richly rewarding experience for the giver and have a positive impact on their health and wellbeing. All BetterPoints programmes encourage and enable users to donate their points, both to support good causes and as an incentive for those that thrive on philanthropy.

We have also re-introduced rewards for acts of kindness into our programmes.

The opportunity to be kind can be a strong motivator because it can make the giver feel good – and that’s no bad thing.

Knowing you have a positive impact on others can give a sense of meaning and purpose in life, and strengthen the resolve to do more.

Recently we had #GivingTuesday – hot on the heels of Black Friday and Cyber Monday – to remind us, at this festive time of year, that it is important to give as well as to get.

In fact, giving has been shown to increase happiness by releasing endorphins. It can help reduce stress, boost self-esteem, and improve both physical and mental health.

Acts of kindness have also been shown to have a compounding effect; that is, they foster a sense of connection with others and cultivate empathy and compassion.

This can all have a ripple effect. Giving to others can inspire them to do the same, creating a positive cycle of generosity and goodwill – and the satisfaction received from giving can stimulate further philanthropy from the giver.

Giving is win-win-win: it benefits the recipient, the giver and – by creating a knock-on effect – society as a whole.

And it can be a wonderfully positive incentive to behave in ways that are healthier and greener.
