The idea for the I Am Happy Project began early 2009. Edwin Edebiri, troubled by all the ongoing news reports on recession and human suffering, wanted a way to encourage people to focus on “the things that really matter, such as faith, family and friends.”
Edebiri believes that “whatever we focus on grows”, and he felt that shifting people’s focus to thoughts of happiness would in turn foster more positive feelings and optimism in individuals and their communities. The mission of the I Am Happy Project is “to spread happiness globally one person at a time.”
Over 21,000 happy people in 64 cities and 19 countries have joined the movement. Membership in the I Am Happy Project, which is free, is informal and spread by means such as word of mouth, Facebook and Meetup.com. It only requires a commitment to happiness. Most local chapters have monthly meetings to bring like-minded happy people together. The group also sponsors “Happiness at School,” to teach students “How to be Happy” and community outreach, where members visit venues such as hospitals and nursing homes to spread happiness where it is most needed.
