Science, lots of science, tells us that giving is good for your health. The good feeling you get when you volunteer or write a check to a cause you care about is very real and physiologically based. Altruistic behavior has been scientifically shown to stimulate the brain’s reward/pleasure center and strengthen the immune system, to cite two examples. The result is better health, including less stress, anxiety and depression.

Oh my goodness, a prospective donor said, “no.” Not a “no” that turns out to be an objection that you can resolve. A “no” that’s a “no.” A goose egg. Do you take it personally? No you don’t. Why? It’s a numbers game. In sales parlance, a “no” triggers a “next.” That’s right. “Next.” Move on to the next donor. | P. O. Box 390105 | Cambridge, MA 02139| phone: (888) 820-0620 | email:
