12 days of Christmas kindness
Spread some festive cheer and win £200 worth of Galt Toys!
We all know there is more to Christmas than presents and here at Galt Toys we are on a mission to spread some of that festive cheer across the nations. To help us achieve this, we would love you to tell us your good deed this Christmas and as a thank you all ‘good deeds’ will be entered into a prize draw to win £200 worth of Galt Toys.
Good deeds could be anything from:
· Carol singing to raise money for a charity
· Baking cookies to give out at school
· Anonymously donating your change jar to a good cause
· Helping your neighbour put up their Christmas lights
· Donating towels to the RSPCA centres
It can be absolutely anything and you’ll know when you’ve done a good deed as you’ll get that warm fuzzy feeling inside you – a small act of kindness can make a real difference.
It’s a classic tale, but the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, the mean-spirited man who realises the joy of good deeds, shows how a selfish act can bring happiness to all.
So what is the science behind a good deed? Researchers have looked at the so-called helper’s high and its effects on the human body and found the wish to perform good deeds will improve our health, even our longevity. A study has found that people who carry out good deeds, experience less anger and stress and feel more positive and self-confident suggesting there is scientific truth to the old adage that when we help others, we also help ourselves.
