International Day of Happiness

March 20, 2017: International Day of Happiness

"Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions". — Dalai Lama

The International Day of Happiness recognizes that happiness is a fundamental human goal, and should be seen as a vital tool for measuring personal success.

Happiness Appreciation Awards

Through acts of appreciation, we can help to increase someone else's happiness levels while increasing our own. Nominate someone who has made you happy, helped you out — or perhaps needs some cheering up — by telling us a quick story of what they have done. They will then be emailed an e-card with their happiness award and your message (if you choose), to let them anonymously know they brightened someone's day!

Nominations are now closed and being processed.
