"Happy people appear to be more concerned with social problems and to be more apt to do something about that. There is also evidence that happiness activates and that it encourages social involvement. . . .unhappiness leads to withdrawal mostly, while happiness fuels openness and involvement. Happiness works as a ‘go signal’." The Happiness Foundation is an organisation which provides pro-bono consulting services to non-profit organizations, helping them achieve their full potential. Uniquely, the organization works as a matchmaker between Volunteer Consultants and charitable projects.
As their website says "We breathe life into organizations that have the desire and the potential to improve the lives of people in need.. . . Happiness breeds happiness. And the more happiness there is in the world, the less we have to worry about the threat of war, disease and economic hardship."
