Project Happiness: A Conversation With Randy Taran - Page 3
gJg: How has the project expanded?
RT: We’ve gotten requests to bring the program into schools so we started working with a group of educators to develop a curriculum and now it’s in all fifty states and fifty-seven countries. We give the program away free to educators.
gJg: Tell me a little about your new initiative, Hungry 4 Happiness.
RT: It’s a cool way to throw a party for happiness. What you do is invite friends over for a screening of the film. After watching the film, you have dinner together. It can be anything from as simple as potluck to a cocktail party. At the end of the evening, everyone makes a small donation to Project Happiness. The idea is then for someone else to host a party and invite more people. This allows it to become a viral campaign to help spread the word and have more people become a part of this happiness movement.
gJg: What are your plans for the future?
RT: World Happiness Domination! [laughs]
What we really want to do is make these tools available to people all over the world. Everyone can access the happiness that we were born with; it’s a skill set that you can practice. We want everyone to create a greater happiness within themselves and then spread it out to the world. That’s our mission.
gJg: What would you like people to take from the Project Happiness movement?
RT: Three things:
1. You are an agent of happiness.
2. You influence people around you more than you know
3. We all have the power to make ourselves and each other happier and bring out the best in one another.
That’s how we change the world!
