Altruism: “A motivational state with the ultimate goal of increasing another’s welfare.”- Baston
Altruism is fundamental to the progress of our species. It is and has always been a pillar of society, inscribed in cultural doctrines from time immemorial. As competitive as we are as a race, it is our core impulse to co-operate rather than compete, both with our own kind as well as others, that sets us apart and allows us to flourish. Research has suggested, time and time again, that prosocial practices enhance our personal, emotional and physical well-being as a comunity.
Through our magazine, we explore “the little things” like the domino effects of a mere smile, to the incredibly courageous act of granting someone the gift of life through organ donation. So join us in our endeavour to raise awareness as to how we may each play a role in making this world a better place, for us and our co-inhabitants.
