In 2010 Jorge Moll founded the D ‘Or Institute for Research and Education (IDOR). IDOR, is a nonprofit institute.

Jorge Moll and Jordan Grafman, another scientist wanted to discover if there is actual biological evidence to support the “warm glow giving” or “joy of giving”, feeling often experienced when humans sacrifice their needs to help someone else. In 1998, there was a study conducted by James Andreoni. James Andreoni was an economist who coined the phrase “warm glow giving” or “joy of giving” (http://www.abc.org.br/~JMOLL). Turns out Moll, along with Grafman was able to discover, for the first time a biologically, measurable data to support the the “warm glow giving” or “joy of giving”.
