The Way to Happiness Foundation is based in Los Angeles, California and has local chapters around the world. The team in Nashville has plans to spread its message further.
According to cityrating.com, “The city violent crime rate for Nashville in 2010 was higher than the national violent crime rate average by 181.15%.” For this reason, the Way to Happiness chapter in Nashville, Tennessee has amped up its efforts and is planning even further distribution and dissemination of the booklet.
The Way to Happiness was written by author, humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard in 1981 to address the decline of the society and provide a path that can be followed by any person to attain a happier, more prosperous and more fulfilling life.
Those distributing the booklet report that when it is spread throughout communities afflicted by violence, gangs and racism, it has brought calm and peace. The booklet has been used in thousands of prisons and its message has restored self-respect among the most hardened criminals, guiding them onto the path to becoming useful and contributing members of society.
“This is why we have to get this booklet to everyone in Nashville,” says Chris Hays who coordinates the local chapter, “every child deserves a happy life and deserves, too, the tools to create one.”
More than 100 million copies of “The Way To Happiness” have been distributed in 205 countries and territories since its initial publication in the early 1980s.
