What We Plan To Do Today to Celebrate Happiness Happens Day

What We Plan To Do Today to Celebrate Happiness Happens Day

Every year for more than 2 decades, FundRaiser staff get a day off at the beginning of August to celebrate Happiness Happens Day. In the tradition of the founders of FundRaiser, Gene and Marcy Weinbeck, at least once a month, the company has a three-day holiday weekend. In August, when the US has no official holiday, Happiness Happens Day creates that 3-day weekend. The week before Happiness Happens Day, it was fun to speculate about what each one of us might do to celebrate. Here's what we intend... 

Autumn Shirley, CEO- I'm going to visit Crystal Bridges Art Museum. I was there last month and I want to go again. I loved the Chihuly Glass Exhibit. 

Jonathan Smith, Lead Support Technician-- Dipping my toe in Gulf of Mexico. We take a vacation every year at this time, and only do what we want... like eat crab legs until we don't want any more. 

Joshua Shirley, CFO- I'll be fiddling with electronics at Ozarks Community Television (OCTV) where I just took the volunteer of Technical Director. 

Mary Lenker, Lead Trainer - I am going to enjoy the beautiful weather and hopefully get some outdoor projects done. 

Raymond Carson, Support Technician- I'm going to relax and watch some shows, like DC's Legends of Tomorrow... I love super hero's. 

Sasha Daucus, Director of Social Media - I'm going to be on my way to visit my family in Colorado. I'll arrive by evening for dinner with my Aunt Sally in Arvada. 

Tamara Lovan- I'm going to be spending some family time, and hanging out with the kids before they go to school 

We hope you'll also do something that you especially enjoy today... and for sure if you celebrate Happiness Happens Day too, let us know!
