Booker T. Washington said “Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.” Well, after the last couple of years if we can use anything, we can use some happy, so it’s time to make us some happy.
amtify’s brand has always been known for our trendy clothing, fun products, good variety, good prices, and good service. Now we’re adding a “DO GOOD FOR OTHERS” Program to that list because it’s been proven that doing good for others makes you happy. We’ll get back to helping you be happy later, it’s really simple, but first some realities.
These pandemic years have made us realize just how interconnected we all are, whether we like it or not, and it’s brought front and center the so many economic and socially driven problems that face us, also whether we like it or not. The problems are decades old, nothing really new, with a short list that reads feed the hungry, educate the children, treat people equally, take care of the sick, give people opportunities.
We’re going to choose to look at these pandemic years for the potential positive that can come out of this relit awareness. It’s not great that it took such an extreme experience to expose things so clearly, but now exposed they can’t be ignored, that would be wrong.
So, the Do Good For Others Program. We've now integrated a Shopify app called ShoppingGives, This app gives you the ability to ask amtify to donate to a choice of Causes, or to search for your own, allowing us to Do Good For Others. To get the Program rolling we’ll donate 10% of the product price of a customer’s purchase to the Cause you choose. We’ll rotate these Causes to cover a wide range of social and societal needs. The donation costs you nothing, and 100% of the contribution goes to the cause. When you purchase, you’ll get an immediate visual and then an email confirmation of the donation.
Back to feeling happy. We did some research, and it turns out that when people give to charities, it activates regions of the brain associated with pleasure and social connection, creating a “warm glow” effect. Giving also releases endorphins in the brain, producing the feeling known as the “helper’s high.” So you can help others and help yourself feel happy all at once.
And how can you get this warm glow of a helper’s high? When you buy something in our Store just check the Box that says “You Shop, We Give” on the product page or at Checkout, choose your Cause, and that’s it. As we said, pretty simple, and you’ll feel good.
It's unknown who said, “Helping one person might not change the world, but it could change the world for one person” but it’s true. Please help us do that for as many one person’s as we can.
