Global Commitment for Acts of Happiness in Honor of International Day of Happiness

[title]

Happiness can change the world, and there's an uplifting addition to the calendar to help spread and share the joy: The United Nations has officially recognized March 20th as The International Day of Happiness. To celebrate, Live Happy LLC, a company dedicated to promoting and sharing authentic happiness through education, integrity, gratitude, and community awareness, has created a call to action to inspire people to help make the world a happier place by intentionally engaging in small acts to share and spread happiness.  As a company dedicated to the art and science of happiness, Live Happy LLC places critical importance on positively impacting anyone and everyone around the globe.  With a goal of receiving 100,000 pledges to commit an act of happiness by March 21, 2014, Live Happy LLC also plans to recognize the happy acts around the US by hosting happiness walls both physically in cities across the US on March 20th and virtually worldwide at ActsofHappiness.org. "As a Company that celebrates and embraces happiness, we are pleased to announce our Acts of Happiness campaign to encourage 100,000 or more people to take the pledge and share their Happy Acts with us on March 20th, as we honor happiness around the world," states Live Happy LLC, Communications Director, Joseph Panetta. "At Live Happy LLC, we live by our purpose of inspiring and connecting people with the possibility for happiness every day. Happiness empowers us to make a positive difference in our lives and in the lives of others and we invite everyone to come with us on our journey to live happy and spread that joy globally."    

To celebrate The International Day of Happiness there will be Happiness Walls in major cities across the U.S.- including two in New York City, as well as walls in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, and Dallas - where people can post how those around them are making the world a happier place and pledge their own acts of happiness. There will also be 20 additional walls throughout the country and the world (for a full list of wall locations visit ActsofHappiness.org). People and businesses are encouraged to create their own Happiness Walls as well. Businesses that have already pledged to create walls include Gaiam, Chicken Soup for the Soul, and Blink Fitness.  

Students around the world are also joining in Acts of Happiness, as Fairleigh Dickinson University has launched a groundbreaking global pilot program to engage students in the campaign. Fairleigh Dickinson will be unveiling Happiness Walls on all of their campuses worldwide- giving students the opportunity to pledge and post their Acts of Happiness on walls in Vancouver and the UK on March 20th and in New Jersey the following week.

If you cannot physically go to a wall, there is also a virtual campaign, enabling anyone in any corner of the world to easily join and share their joy: anyone can post and pledge their acts of happiness to a virtual wall at Actsofhappiness.org and share their acts using the hashtag #HAPPYACTS on social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram).

Pledging an act via #HAPPYACTS allows participants to showcase that they have taken their Acts of Happiness Pledge and share the happy acts they have given and/or received in an effort to spread their joy worldwide and contribute to the global movement of happiness.

Continuing their philanthropic support of Big Brothers, Big Sisters of America, Live Happy LLC, through their Acts of Happiness campaign, has also pledged to donate $1 for each Happiness pledge made (up to $25,000) through ActsofHappiness.org on March 20th, 2014 to the organizations. Live Happy LLC reaffirms its dedication helping children realize their potential and build their futures, through this donation and their continued partnership. This ongoing relationship furthers Live Happy's mission to impact the world through a happiness movement that inspires people to engage in living purpose-driven, healthy, meaningful lives.
