Sheffield Equality Group

Giving makes the world go round

Everyone feels like they are worth at least what they earn, and “workers with more academic qualifications and more experience – both likely to correlate with higher pay – are less likely to be satisfied with any bonus they receive” (BBC)…
 
Perhaps the problem is that once you’ve covered your basic needs, spending money doesn’t make you happy, though giving it away does… (The Guardian)
 
So if you, or a friend, has more money than happiness – why not encourage them to engage in a bit of “pro-social spending” (that’s economics speak for giving to good causes)… for example, you can help out the S2 Foodbank
