Research has shown the benefits of smiling and laughing range from strengthening the immune system to increasing one’s threshold for pain. So why not have a fundraiser that makes you smile?
It makes us attractive: We are all naturally drawn to people who smile.
It changes our mood: Next time you are feeling down, try putting on a smile. There’s a good chance you mood will change for the better. Smiling can trick the body into helping you change your mood.
It’s contagious: When someone is smiling they lighten up the room, change the moods of others, and make things happier.
Smiling boosts your immune system: Smiling helps the immune system to work better. When you smile, immune function improves, possibly because you are more relaxed. So, you can even help prevent the flu and colds by smiling.
Smiling lowers your blood pressure: When you smile, there is a measurable reduction in your blood pressure.
Smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers and serotonin: Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers, and serotonin. Together these three make us feel good. Smiling is a natural drug.
Smiling lifts the face and makes you look younger: The muscles we use to smile lift the face, making us appear younger. Instead of a face lift, just try smiling your way through the day — you’ll look younger and feel better.
A Smiling Fundraiser
I received the Health Care-toons Calendar as a gift. This desk calendar has cartoons with daily wellness quests, each with an inspirational quote, joke, and cartoon designed to get people laughing, talking, and enjoying daily health practices.
It’s a great calendar to put on your desk to start your day off with a laugh and a smile! And why not use it to raise some funds too?
For one box (34 Health Care-toons Calendars), your cost is $170. You can sell the calendars for $10 each, earning $340. Your profit is $170!
For five boxes, you can earn $850 in profit! Just bring these to work, and you’ll see how many of your colleagues are going to want to purchase one to put on their desks!
