To all the social impact professionals and enthusiasts that read this email, we just want to congratulate your efforts and successes during the first half of 2023! A massive amount of impact was made. To kick off our July newsletter, we decided to take a moment and celebrate you all! Here are a few images of some of our favorite moments over the last 6 months (and a few memes as well).
What do we have in store for you today? Our "tour dates", new WeHero Learn content, a new WeHero 100, and dates you should definitely be paying attention to.
Let's dive in
According to a study published in the Journal of Economic Psychology, giving to others can actually make us happier than spending money on ourselves. The researchers found that when individuals spent money on others or donated to charitable causes, they experienced a greater sense of happiness and satisfaction compared to when they spent money solely on themselves. This suggests that acts of generosity and altruism can have a positive impact not only on the recipients but also on the well-being of the givers. So, spreading kindness and helping others can bring us greater happiness in life!
We're on tour and continuing to speak on industry webinars and events! Our goal is to share the latest trends when it comes to corporate volunteering and employee engagement. WeHero will be speaking at the following:
Our co-founder Ben Sampson will be joining Kate Barrett, President of the Campbell Soup Foundation for an Engage for Good discussion on the power of volunteering and addressing the twin objectives of fostering meaningful and sustained employee engagement and delivering true social impact.
