"The best kind of high is a helper's high." ~Laura Esposito
A 2007 article from the Corporation for National and Community Service reviews the "Health Benefits of Volunteering," specifically citing the "Helper's High," as a positive feeling associated with volunteering.
The health benefits go beyond generating this positive feeling of Helper's High, including "increased trust in others, and increased social and political participation."
