Giving To Charity Makes Us Happy
Not only can you gift the perfect Christmas present and deliver happiness, but you can gift knowing that you are helping a worthy cause. There are mental and health benefits to being charitable. Studies show that acts of charity release endorphins and reduce stress. A study from the journal Science in 2007 found that donating to charity activates areas in the brain that are linked to reward processing. Acts of charity stimulate the brain’s pleasure cycle and release the feel-good chemical endorphins, and oxytocin, which promotes tranquillity and inner peace.
Happiness all round!

Dan Mountain, CEO of Red Letter Days said,
“Our ethos is about delivering happiness. Sadly more than one in four children in the UK are growing up in poverty. We want to help deliver some happiness to those children in need. We are delighted to support Child Poverty Action Group and the fantastic work they do. Hopefully the people who buy the Merry Christmas Gift Box can gift knowing they are not only delivering happiness to their loved one, but to helping Child Poverty Action Group to tackle child poverty.”
Alison Garnham, Chief Executive of Child Poverty Action Group said,
“Child Poverty Action Group is delighted to partner with Red Letter Days this Christmas. When children grow up in poverty, every area of their life is jeopardised. They are likely to have worse health. Generally, they do less well at school than their better off peers and earn less as adults. That isn’t right. Last year, CPAG’s work reached over 33,000 families. Red Letter Days’ charity donation will mean we can help even more struggling families.”
