Scientific research shows that when we do something nice for someone our brain produces dopamine, which makes us feel happy.
This is your opportunity!
What is Giving Back?
It is an initiative working with selected shops in Totnes, enabling patrons to make a gift to benefit local people in need. See the list of cooperating businesses below.
"Giving Back" promotes giving to others from a place of gratitude for what we have, for no other reason other than because we can.
The vision of Giving Back is to work with people to look for ways to facilitate opportunities that will change their circumstances. Giving Back aims to bring hope and a future into the lives of those in need.
Why use Giving Back?
Many of us want to help those in need, but are not sure of the best way to do so. At times there can be a dilemma in giving cash.
Giving Back is a conduit through which you can give without reservation, knowing that your money will go directly to meeting the needs of local people in need.
