The Increase Happiness event encourages you to make a difference in increasing happiness in the world. It is a movement of charity, love, peace, hope, kindness, and happiness.
On November 10, 2014, post a picture of yourself with a sign that says “I’m going to increase happiness by …” and state what you will do. See examples in the cover photo above and in the video below. If you want to participate, go to the #IncreaseHappiness Facebook event and click Join. Then, on November 10, post your picture with your sign on Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Twitter, or other social media. Be sure to use the hashtag #IncreaseHappiness in your post and when you reshare other pictures you see.
The Increase Happiness event is an attempt to follow Elder David A. Bednar’s exhortation to “sweep the earth as with a flood.” It was created by some members and full-time missionaries.
The idea goes beyond simply posting a picture of yourself holding a sign. The event encourages you to actually do what you commit to do. Publicly announce it on social media and then follow through by accomplishing the goals you set for yourself to increase happiness in the world in some way.
The movement is for people of all faiths, so engage everyone you know.
