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♥

Three New Happy Ambassadors!

Welcome to my three new happy ambassadors - from two states other than my own (Texas and New Jersey!) - who have enthusiastically accepted the challenge of passing on Little Happys to the world around them.

One of our new Happy Friends in Texas has already been passing out her version of Happys - here's what she wrote and I found it inspiring:

"I like to smile at people who are frowning and see them smile back, I randomly gave my bus driver a mixed cd once and valentines candy on valentines day. I gave a convenience store worker a gift card around christmas and he gave me back a bottle of never know how many people just need some human compassion in their lives. ;-)"

Well said!

I can't wait to start getting lots of Little Happy stories. There is joy in anticipation!!
