In the middle of November, I stood in the middle of a loud and dusty warehouse. The floors were covered in filth and the room was filled with a mixed age group ranging from thirteen to eighty-five. I glanced around at all of the workers and volunteers, they were so joyful and enthusiastic. It took me all of five minutes to recognize why I was there. I wanted to make a difference in the lives of children across the world. This was the moment in time when I realized just how fortunate my family was and how something as simple as a cardboard shoebox could mean so much to children across the world. Being appreciative of all that God has provided for me became very evident while at Operation Christmas Child. This was a major component of my maturity
I agree that money leads to happiness because if you don't have money you can't buy things, you can't go out and do things like go on vacations and do things just to have fun.
Money cannot buy happiness because real happiness is something like a family, friendship, and true love that you feel toward these people. By the way, we all know that money cannot buy all the people you love to make them love you back like your family and friendship. Because you can only have these people once in your life time, and once you lose them, you can never have
There are numerous ways by means of which someone can buy happiness. Money expands personal satisfaction in which purchases joy (Dunn, Lara and Michael). This is just valid on the off chance that one lives inside his methods, carries on an unassuming life style and seeks the correct way after satisfaction. The amount of joy that one can have is most of the times overestimated by the individuals when they procure expensive things.
Undoubtedly, money is and has been arguably the most important aspect of any society in the world. Money is an essential piece of every day life because of the fact that nearly everything comes with a price tag. With how important the aspect of money has become, there have been arguments about whether money can truly make an individual happy. This particular topic has been highly controversial with multiple different stands on the effect of money on happiness. With that being said, money does influence people and makes them happier because they can live comfortably without worry, it allows for many dreams to become realities, and it provides the opportunity to give back and help others.

My goal it to help the less fortunate kids around the world. I will be working with the Operation Christmas Child program to make sure kids get presents for christmas. For their presents I will put fun toys and some everyday materials they need. By the end of June I will have made all the presents in boxes, wrapped them and store them until Christmas time when they get shipped out. My evidence will be a picture of me sitting in front of all the boxes.
We’ve all heard the saying, “Money can’t buy happiness.” While it’s true in some way, it’s also true that you can use money as an instrument to help you buy something or anything that will make you happy.
The Salvation Army is another organization that helps people in need. My mother has been on the board for the Salvation Army for many years. Especially around the holiday many people turn to the Salvation Army for help. Numerous people have lost jobs or have health issues that prevent them from being able to put food on the table. It has been extremely gratifying to work along side my mom, dad, husband, sister and brother-in-law as we were part of the assembly line filling food boxes that were provided to nearly 700 households in Newark this year. In addition to food boxes, the Salvation Army helps parents fill the “wish lists” of so many young children
Newark states in her article, that her friend thought happiness was to ‘generate an acceptable quantity of cash in the least amount of time possible’. Newark is right. Working in a brief period of time and earning a tremendous amount may cause you to be joyful - but it all comes to what you would do with the money after the hard work. While some may disagree, wealth is an element of happiness which I would agree to. Cash could potentially help gain happiness if you spend it wisely. Clearly, while it comes to personal preference - money does make the world go around. We need money to travel, to buy belongings and essentially to live. So, what is actually wrong with being happy, if you have that
We all have heard the phrase “money can’t buy you happiness.” That phrase is a lie because mostly everything in today’s society revolves around money. The things people like revolve around money too. What a coincidence? Let’s say a person is upset so they go buy their favorite ice cream because they know it will make them happy.

If it was not for the money, they would not have gotten that dream car, so basically the money made them happy. The truth is money makes people happy.
Landau states that “more money does not necessarily buy more happiness, but less money is associated with emotional pain” meaning money is materialistic and in the long run will not effect long term happiness (Landau 2). Money will buy you something materialistic that will be temporary in your life but after time fades you will eventually get bored until you find something new although it might have left you with some good memories and experience.
There are many people claim that there is not any relationship between money and happiness. However, I believe that there is a direct relationship between money and happiness. Research shows that being able to provide our basic needs and higher-level wants leads us to a happy life. The relationship between money and happiness is like the relationship between food and body. “The importance of money in human life is similar to the importance of food for the body. Just like you can’t live even for a few days without food, you can’t survive for long without money.”(Singh, 2015).Having access to our necessities, being able to participate in leisure activities, and being able to help our friends, are things which make us happy; and we need money for having them.So, for being happy in our life,
