Earlier this week Actsofhappiness.org helped to set the mood and promote its Acts of Happiness campaign with a Happiness Happy Hour, hosted by Krupp Kommunications. Originally conceived by the United Nations, International Day of Happiness will see Happiness Walls built in more than 25 cities around the country — including San Francisco, New York, Dallas and Atlanta — so that people everywhere can celebrate and post their Acts of Happiness to spread and share joy.

To launch the campaign, Happiness Happy Hour attendees posted their own Acts of Happiness (#HappyActs) to start a Happiness Wall right there in the K2 Offices.

It was very fun and inspiring to share each others’ Acts of Happiness stories while enjoying tasty snacks and refreshing beverages, provided by K2.
