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♥

Welcome Spring!

It's Spring and time for colorful celebrations!

Here's a Happy Story from a special Team Member in New Jersey:

"I also gave a Little Happy to the janitor who works in my office building. She seemed very surprised and thankful and said the Little Happy was "SO CUTE"! It definitely put a smile on her face! Good to see her smiling as I am thankful for the hard work she does around our office. I usually stay pretty late and see her after hours cleaning away. She deserved the thanks and the "pick me up" for a job well-done!"

Exactly the kind of stories we like to hear. An unsung hero getting a pat on the back and a message of friendship in unlikely circumstances.

I've been a little pokey about getting the contest really up and running...but I haven't forgotten!

Have a wonderful, first weekend of Spring.
