Instinct Of Altruism


2018
To be Selfless.

Altruistic behavior is when someone does an action that benefits the welfare of others over their own. Selfless individuals exist everywhere, from a person who opens a door for someone in need, to a rescuer from the Albanian genocide tragedy. People need to know about altruistic heroes so it can raise their standards of morality. People need to embrace altruism in order to achieve a more united society. The meaning behind this project is to shed a light on the many ways that altruistic individuals exist in society, and how society itself can change if it integrates Altruism.
