14 Days Until – 100 Men YEG Spring Meeting
We are 14 days away from our next 100 Men YEG meeting!
Mark your calendars and book the night off to attend the Spring Meeting on Tuesday April 17 at the Derrick club.
We will have 3 charities join us to let us know about their needs and the programs they are providing to community.
Giving is contagious……when we give, we don’t only help the immediate recipient of our donation or gift. We also spur a ripple effect of generosity through our community.
A study by James Fowler of the University of California, San Diego, and Nicholas Christakis of Harvard, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, shows that when one person behaves generously, it inspires observers to behave generously later, toward different people. In fact, the researchers found that altruism could spread by three degrees—from person to person to person to person. “As a result,” they write, “each person in a network can influence dozens or even hundreds of people, some of whom he or she does not know and has not met.”
So whether you buy gifts, volunteer your time, or donate money to charity, your giving is much more than just a chore. It may help you build stronger social connections and even jumpstart a cascade of generosity through your community.
If you are unable to attend the Spring Meeting please donate online HERE.
April 17, 2018 starting at 5:30pm at The Derrick Golf and Winter Club.
