Jenny Santi’s book The Giving Way To Happiness: The Life-Changing Power Of Giving explores the positive effects of philanthropic giving on the giver such as the potential benefits to health, personal and social life. Santi interviews several philanthropists in the book to find out why they give and what effect it has on their lives. The giving stories are told by philanthropists like Academy Award winner Goldie Hawn, Noble Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, supermodel Christy Turlington Burns, Teach for America founder Wendy Kopp, philanthropist Richard Rockefeller and environmentalist Philippe Cousteau revealing how they have all found unexpected happiness and fulfillment through giving.
Drawing on the wisdom of great thinkers and scientific research, Santi makes an eloquent and passionate case that often answers to to our problems and finding our happiness lie in helping those around us.
The book also reveals:
– That we are wired to give because it activates the same pleasure centers of the brain stimulated by food, sex, and drugs.
– How helping others can be a healthy way to deal with adversity and process grief.
– The unexpected reasons why those who “gave it all up” to make a difference even while experiencing the worse situations, are some of the happiest.
– How to discover giving that is for you and makes you feel good?
It is an inspiring book and a must read. Jenny Santi is a philanthropy advisor to some of the world’s most generous philanthropists and celebrity activists.
