UPDATE 02.12.09 - THE PAPER HAPPYS JUST WEREN'T AS EXCITING - SO I CHANGED THE FREE OFFER TO TWO FELTIE HAPPYS AS LONG AS I RECEIVE A SELF-ADDRESSED, STAMPED ENVELOPE (WITH 83cents) TO THE HAPPYGOLITELY PROJECT ADDRESS. CAN'T SCRIMP ON HAPPY NOW CAN WE??
Thought you all might like to see what the free version of Little Happys look like. They're essentially pictures of the little feltie ones. The back has directions if people would like to participate in The Project...but hey - it's always okay if people just want to love their Little Happys and do nothing more.
I'm still sending out FREE feltie versions to those who want to be Happy Ambassadors - and I have room to add on a few more. Let me know - I'm only an email away (firstname.lastname@example.org). I'm especially interested in getting these out beyond the borders of California and the US.
Happy Happy! girlgolite♥
The Happygolitely Project
I realize, a little more each day, how important it is for us all to reach out to each other, to support each other, to show one another we care. We are all part of the same; we are all human; we are stronger together. When we feel united, we feel happier for the sense of connection.
An idea popped into my head to create ‘a little happy’ that could be given/shared. Then it came to me to make this a social experiment. To somehow get these little happys out to people so that they could give them to whomever they felt needed it. I knew some people would give them to friends or family who were having a bad day or needed a boost; but my grander vision was that people would pass these on spontaneously to seeming strangers –
-to anyone who looked like they would benefit from a small gesture, a little happy, that came out of the blue & proved to them someone cared, the Universe cares.
Then I came up with our tag-line:
“A Little Happy Goes a Long Way”
I hope these Little Happys span the globe – to travel over continents & bodies of water, over cultural differences & language barriers, past financial problems & economic crises, through the hands of people who would otherwise remain unconnected.
Please send me your Happy Little Story – tell me how far your Little Happy traveled – tell me who you shared yours with – tell me who shared theirs with you. Let's all create a web of happiness as far as we can imagine.
In happiness, ~girlgolite♥
