The simple act of giving, trying something new, adding color, starting a project…all these activities bring joy to our world when we add them to our daily lives.
How do you create your happy every day? Is it through making art, writing, craft projects, organizing or even giving to others? We love to hear how our community is adding color to the world around us and we believe that we can unite to add happy to others lives through creativity and inspired giving!
Here are some easy ideas to help inspire you to add happy to the world around you by sharing your creativity.
Write an impromptu note to a special friend, teacher, child, or parent and add happy to your community through everyday acts of kindness. The unexpected notes encourage the notion that small gestures can create a huge impact. One smile can go a long way!
If you’re passionate about art, crafting, or writing you can send your creations to a person working through a challenge! Make a homemade card for a person at a homeless shelter or rescue mission. Add happy every day by sending positivity! With a caring card, you’re brightening someone’s day in a unique way. Find a shelter near you here: Homeless Shelter Directory USA
Art for All:
If organizing an event is your thing, why not add happy through coordinating a holiday crafting workshop, a make and take craft event, or hosting a creative kids event encouraging kids of all ages to express their creativity!
