Evidence supports that, gift-giving behaviors, help humans secrete “feel good” chemicals in our brains, such as serotonin (a mood-mediating chemical), dopamine (a feel-good chemical) and oxytocin (a compassion and bonding chemical) (Cleveland Clinic, 2020).
Stress and depression are often linked to inner strife, so putting other people first through volunteerism or making a financial donation can shift our focus outside of ourselves. This new insight and perspective outside of your situation can lessen the impact of negative thoughts and make room for an increase in confidence (Talkspace, 2019).
Unique Spectrum of People
U + Swarthy Lion can build a unique spectrum of people that give to get healthy. Unlike anyone else, U have the power to make a change. By giving a loving gift or affection to someone U can help improve their mental and physical health. Give us a hand to raise autism awareness and be unique.
On Giving Tuesday, Swarthy Lion will donate to the House of Artists Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with vocational training programs and events centered around creative arts & independent living skills that benefits the lives of those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
"....treat people the way you would want them to treat you."
The Bible teaches us, "The Golden Rule." We take responsibility for treating people well. We want to invite you to help autistic and non-autistic people get spiritually, emotionally, physically, and socially well.
