How Happiness is Happening Now for FundRaiser Staff


Monday August 6 is the annual Happiness Happens celebration that we enjoy so much every year. The celebration was instituted years ago by FundRaiser founders and continues to this day as the current owners favorite holiday. This year we again commemorate it by sharing with you our staff's plans to celebrate the weekend and the day

Autumn Shirley, CEO- I'm going to be at my family open house on the river, with some of our favorite people.

Joshua Shirley, CFO- I'll be at the family open house, too. 

Jonathan Smith, Lead Support Technician- I plan to fix a couple leaky faucets - one on a shower and one on an outdoor spigot. And I'd like to put some tar-paper on the roof of our bike-shed to keep rain from leaking on our bikes.  And, weather permitting, I may play 9 holes of golf.

Mary Lenker, Lead Trainer - I am going to spend time with my horses and curl up with a good book.

Raymond Carson, Support Technician- I'm going to spend some time doing art work. I do Anthropomorphic Graphic Design. I've purchased a new drawing tablet (Intuos Cintiq) recently that makes is easier to draw.  

Sasha Daucus, Director of Social Media - I'll be visiting my family in Colorado.  I'm going having dinner with my Dad and sister, after the weekend camping in the Rockies with my sister. 

Tamara Lovan- I’ll just be enjoying a nice, quiet weekend with my children before they have to go back to school. We may have a BBQ and spend some time outside taking in the last bits of summer together.

We hope you'll also do something that you especially enjoy today... and for sure if you celebrate Happiness Happens Day too, we'd love to hear what you did!
