Generaltiy of the "Glow of Goodwill": Effects of Mood on Helping and Information Acquisition.
Batson, C. Daniel; And Others
Social Psychology Quarterly, v42 n2 p176-79 Jun 1979

Opportunities to acquire information and to help another person were then presented. Elevating mood increased helping but also increased information acquisition, supporting an activation explanation.
