Just as it says in the name, Project Happiness pushes people, such as us Key Clubbers, to make our communities a happier and more enjoyable environment to be around. Their main goal is to address the ongoing bullying issue at its core. Happiness is not just a skill one acquires. It is something that you would work on, such as multiplication facts, to get better at over time.
Sitting across the kitchen table, my teenager whispered, "I want to be happy but I don’t know...how." As the situation became more intense in school and at home, signs of depression became more evident and I didn’t know what to do. It rocked me to the core; I ached for a way to help. I asked myself, "Where were the resources, how many more were suffering, and why are we not talking about this?"
This was the beginning of my journey, and the catalyst for starting my pro-purpose, non-profit, Project Happiness. Though my inspiration was personal, I soon found out the issue at hand was global. My vision in finding resources to help my own child soon expanded to the dream of World Happiness Domination!
But, where would I start? Looking for answers, I produced an award-winning documentary on happiness featuring George Lucas, Richard Gere, Neuroscientist Richard Davidson, and the Dalai Lama.
