Science shows us that those who feel grateful and more prone to what’s call “pro-social behavior.” In a nutshell; when you feel grateful, you feel compelled to do good for others. We think Angel Magnussen must experience a boatload of gratitude, because just take a look at what this enterprising 18-year-old has done:
Hugginz by Angel exists solely to make sure sick kids are wrapped up in warmth and love. How many 18-year-olds do you know who would make this their mission in life?
I’m grateful to TELUS’ We Give Where We Live program for shining a light on incredible young adults like Angel who are doing wonderful things for others, and grateful to Angel for being such an amazing philanthropist. (You can follow her on Twitter and Facebook if you want to keep up on her work.)
Gratitude is good for us, and good for those around us. Now that’s awesome.
