On June 28th 2012, the United Nations General Assembly declared March 20th as the International Day of Happiness. Conscious that the pursuit of happiness is a fundamental human goal, they recognized the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations.

We’re celebrating happiness not only as a basic human right, but as a way of living and working.

We’re happy when we’re pursuing a purpose, when we’re grateful for what we have and when we appreciate those around us.

Join us in celebrating happiness! www.gethppy.com

“When we contribute to the common good, we ourselves are enriched. Compassion promotes happiness and will help build the future we want”

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon -March 2013

This year we're partnering up with Action for Happiness to “RECLAIM HAPPINESS” - www.dayofhappiness.net

Happiness is often being used as a selling trick by companies and individuals who tell us that being happy comes at a cost.

We could point to many studies showing how wrong this is – lasting happiness does not come from what we consume, how we look or how much we earn.

Deep down we all know the things that make us happy. If only we could remind ourselves to appreciate those moments more often – and inspire others to do the same.

To celebrate the Day of Happiness 2014, we’re asking people around the world to share a genuine vision of happiness.

What made you happy today?

Tweet us @gethppy and tell us how you’re feeling this #happinessday!
