Why Good Things Happen to Good People

It's been said that bad things happen to good people. But could it be that the opposite is true? Jolenta and Kristen attempt to find out, by following the rules of "Why Good Things Happen to Good People," by Stephen G. Post and Jill Neimark. Join them as they undertake ten assigned tasks of goodness - including helping future generations and performing acts of bravery - all in the hopes of finding a greater sense of happiness and well-being.
