Do you believe money can buy happiness?
There was a time, in college, when I thought it might.
I obviously had it wrong.
I do believe, however, that there is something to the argument in this video when it comes to the ways we spend money:
I can tell you, from years of experience, that a classroom in your neighborhood school is a great place to give some of your money, if you're looking to be a bit happier. There are even organizations like DonorsChoose.org and Support My Club that allow you to choose a specific school/teacher/project to support. And you don't have to be a billionaire philanthropist to participate.
Also, I'm gearing up to start a collaborative bake sale for books. One of the goals on my bucket list is to raise $1000 or more in a school bake sale, and I'm planning to make it happen before school ends here in Denver at the beginning of June. I would love your help with achieving this goal, so stay tuned for more information as I iron out the details.
In the meantime, what are you spending money on today? Will it make you more happy or less happy?
