There are several ways for organizations and businesses to participate:
Encourage Your Staff or Members to Participate
This could be as simple as asking folks to sign up to the weekly happiness emails. Or can include putting up a poster in the break room, adding a note in your newsletter, or reading out a stat or quote at the start of an online staff meeting. Did we mention that happier people are more productive?
Host a Happiness Group
This can be as easy as adding 10 minutes to a weekly staff meeting. Or set up a new time for people meet once a week with other people who have decided to tackle the 3 daily habits during the month. We have simple instructions to help you set this up and keep things going.
Run an Event in October
Offer something that helps make people happy and we promote it in our newsletter. Past examples include: a cooking classes, workshops, uke lessons, making a gratitude jar or journal, hikes, yoga, thank you card writing, a dice game, beer tasting, board games, etc. Events just need to be free, COVID safe, and open to the public.
Random Give-Aways to Your Customers
Surprise your customers with a free cup of coffee or small gift and simply mention it’s for Gorge Happiness Month.
Sponsor a Cynic
Know someone who is a bit of a curmudgeon or a grump. Inspire them to do the habits for the month by donating a prize to give them at the end or along the way. This can be anything from weekly coffee drinks to a donation to a worthy charity in their name.
Simply Help Spread the Word
The more people we sign up, the merrier – literally. Send an email to your staff or customers. Sign up to our Facebook page and re-post happiness month posts. Create your own happiness posts for us to share. Add a sign or poster to store, etc.
Send us your logo and a picture or description of what you are doing (or post it directly to our Facebook group). All events & groups will be promoted in the weekly newsletters and on the Facebook group.
