Is it really better to give than to receive? Why do people feel better when they help others? Is there a scientific explanation as to why no matter how mean a person is, he still has this inclination to help others or give something away?

The guys from AsapTHOUGHT made a video on why it really is better to give than to receive. There is a satisfaction we feel when we give something away or when we help somebody out, and science can explain that. Aside from the satisfaction we feel when we help others out, studies also revealed that there is a reward center in our brain that is activated when we buy things for others.

Another reason why we are inclined to help out those who are in need is because of the “mirror” response in our brains. We tend to see ourselves in their situation so we want to help them out.

With the population continuously increasing all over the world, there is an emerging problem on housing, especially in large urban areas. Homeless people are a common sight in the streets, carrying all their worldly possessions with them while searching for the next place to sleep. Obviously, with no place to call home, these unfortunate souls have nowhere to take care of their personal needs such as bathing.

Which is why this project of nonprofit organization Lava Mae is a godsend for all the homeless people in San Francisco, USA. Lava Mae converted  old city buses into mobile shower units for homeless people. By using the bus, the organization provides services across the whole city, transferring to places where it is most needed.
