A Message from Founder, CYNTHIA BRIAN

A research study titled “Americans’ Changing Lives” followed more than 3600 people for ten years to find that people of all ages who did community service through volunteering were happier, healthy, and less depressed than those who didn’t. Scientists discovered a physiological basis for the warm glow that accompanies giving. Scans showed that the brain structures activated by rewards are the same ones activated by giving. When you give time or money, feel good chemicals are released triggering a surge of physical energy. The dopamine pulse lights up the same pleasure source as eating or having sex. It’s clear that donating and volunteering help people feel good. When we give back, our focus is shifted outside of ourselves, giving your brain and body a break from despair.

I have always felt that giving is the paradox of life. The more we give, the more we get. When we help others, we help ourselves.For Mother’s Day, make a donation to Be the Star You Are!® and give both yourself and the great woman in the world the gift of happiness, health, and love.

Make sure to visit the Be the Star You Are!® Express Yourself!TM Teen Radio booth at the Moraga Faire on May 12 where our teens will host two live shows plus give community businesses the opportunity to lay down a 30 second commercial for a donation to the charity. Young people are invited to share their thoughts on their school years and upcoming summer vacation. If you make music or sing, come join the jam session.
