Researchers have found that charitable giving improves the donor's self esteem and sense of connection, and makes them happier. Giving creates a pleasurable feedback that people find very rewarding. On The Point, we talk about the balance of giving and receiving, and the many ways these experiences affect our lives. Dr. Marc Whaley, psychiatrist, joins host Mindy Todd in the studio to discuss the topic.
