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

1 // Fun fact of the month

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!

2 // WeHero On Tour

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:
