The Tennessee chapter of The Way to Happiness Foundation will observe the United Nations International Day of Happiness on March 20.
The Way to Happiness Foundation, based in Los Angeles with chapters across the world, was formed to forward the booklet of the same name written by L. Ron Hubbard. The Way to Happiness booklet details 21 precepts that are predicated on the fact that one’s survival depends on the survival of others.
According to thewaytohappiness.org, “This code of conduct can be followed by anyone, of any race, color or creed and works to restore the bonds that unite humankind.” The Way to Happiness aims at giving people back a sense of what is right and wrong in a way that is easy to understand. In the two decades since it was authored, some 80 million copies of the book passed hand to hand.
That is why the Tennessee chapter of The Way to Happiness plans to distribute the booklet to honor the United Nations International Day of Happiness on March 20th. Rev. Brian Fesler who serves as regional coordinator for the Tennessee Chapter says, “These easy-to-follow precepts grant anyone the ability to live their life fully which is the perfect gift to give someone on International Day of Happiness.”
The Tennessee Chapter launched a campaign to distribute copies of the booklet in 2009. Since that time, the group has volunteered in local health fairs, festivals and community gatherings. Thousands of booklets have been distributed.
Fesler says, “Our goal is a crime-free, healthy, and happy community.” For more information, visit thewaytohappiness.org.
