Welcome to the Happy Day Project!
Jeannett and I are so glad that you are here.

How about some background?
We both were inspired by this post and knew that we wanted to do something meaningful leading up to the holiday season.

This whole use your blog for good thing is fun!
So we brainstormed and came up with a little plan.
For one week we will spread sunshine unexpectedly.
Many of the tasks are easy, lots of them can involve little ones.
All of them will be a little ray of light in some one's day.

But we also wanted to make it cute.
We like cute.
So we enlisted super talented friends who donated their time and skill to make printables that go with the day's task.

Then we wanted to make an even bigger impact.  Jeannett has a heart to fund raise.  I am consistently amazed at how she takes her passions and puts them to work.  We have picked a charity to feature each day, to compliment the daily task.  A charity that is near and dear to our hearts.

Here is a list of what is in store:
What's next?
We start Monday.  Both Jeannett and I will be a day ahead so we are able to post about the daily task bright and early in the morning.  Each assignment will have many options so you can tailor it to your family, your community, or your schedule.

At the end of the week we will celebrate the days that were made just a little bit happier with a big linky party and some super fun surprises.

What can you do?
Join in!
Commit to spending the next couple of days thinking and planning what you are going to do.  Even better than that, help us spread the word.  Blog, tweet, facebook, pin, sky write, about The Happy Day Project.  Lets flood the world with sunshine next week.


Want a cute button to decorate your sidebar?
Here you go...  grab away.

happy day

We would love to know if you are joining us.  Write a post to spread the word.  Feel free to grab any images you'd like.  Then link up your post below.  (You can link up here or at Life Rearranged, but you don't need to link up both places.  We are sharing the linky, so your cute little thumbnail will appear no matter where you start.)
