ActionForHappinessNot only is this Sunday 20th March the Spring Equinox, it’s also the International Day of Happiness as declared by the General Assembly of the United Nations.

The good news is that happiness is something that you can cultivate with practice, and something meaningful, like volunteering is one of the things you can do to make yourself feel better. Not only that, but volunteering will have a positive effect on those around you too!

It really is a win win scenario, and it’s scientifically proven!

Why not combine the two and get involved with DRCET by volunteering? If you’re interested email Sarah for more information
