Forget Your Troubles! C'mon, Get Happy!
On August 1, this year's August Happiness Challenge begins. The idea is very simple: "Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world."
Really. That's all there is to it. No rules.
I like finding an icon that will make me smile every time I see it for 31 days.
**Apparently we'll just use the comments as a list to visit from.
I thought I'd share this here on Bridge and Beyond, because I believe we give happiness with our knitting and our crocheting. We give happiness to those who receive our items AND it makes me happy to be able to do this. I'm betting it gives you all who help the cause happiness too. With that in mind, I'm throwing out a challenge for this month of August, share your happiness. If you're one that already knits and crochets and donates here, send me a note using the contact form in the right side bar telling me how being a part of this gives you happiness. In addition, tell one other person...someone you work with, a neighbor, a family member...the best way to be happy is to do for others, let's recruit more happy helping people If you're not someone who's knitted or crocheted and donated here before, and are here perhaps because of the blog challenge; join us. Spread the happiness. If you don't knit or crochet, YOU can still help. We collect personal care items all year long, take a look at the PERSONAL CARE TAB across the top of the blog, this is something EVERYONE can help with.
All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.
