    Hi teachers,

    Re: be the donor of

    It's grammatical, but it's a bit odd.

    Re: be the donor of

    Can you please give an alternative which is not odd? I don't think this "be the giver of happiness" is correct.

    Spread happiness.
    Make someone happy.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: be the donor of

    It's incomplete- what's the complete context?

    Re: be the donor of

    It is a short sentence in my language. I tried to translate it.

    Be the donor of the happiness. You will be relieved/satisfied.
