Share Happiness!

Happy International Day of Happiness! Ready to celebrate the International Day of Happiness? We all know that giving back to friends and community is a great way to spread positivity and boost your own joy! Many individuals know how to give back on their own, but when you have a family it gets a bit challenging to find activities to do together.

But have no fear, because we are here to share easy ways you can give back as a family and share in your happiness together. We know that many families have young children, so we’ve made sure to create a list of kid-friendly ways you can give back.

Celebrate the International Day of Happiness With Your Family

Take a look at these incredible giving suggestions your family can do on the International Day of Happiness.

  1. Volunteer together!
    There are so many kid-friendly places you can volunteer at with your entire family. Try giving your local food bank, animal shelter and soup kitchen a call and ask if there are any kid-friendly tasks your kids can do! (With you supervising)
  2. Gather and donate clothing and toys
    Whether you are buying new items or sifting through your gently-used ones for donation, this is a great family activity to do together!
  3. Write letters to soldiers and resident homes
    Letter writing is one activity you can all do together! It’s also easy for kids to complete. If your kids are too young to write on their own, you can write a message on behalf of them and have them draw a picture.
  4. Clean up the environment
    Grab some bags and garbage tongs and head to a local park or street to clean up your environment. You can do this any time you like and it’s a great activity to do as a group!
  5. Donate food to your local food bank
    Your entire family can go shopping together, load the food into your vehicle then drop it off to your local food bank as a group!
  6. Help local senior citizens
    Do you know a senior citizen that needs some help in your neighbourhood? Maybe they need some help buying groceries, cleaning up their lawns or need technological assistance. These are all tasks your family can take on and distribute amongst one another.
  7. Give back to your neighbours
    Whether you bake them some cookies, help with babysitting or send a kind note – it all makes a difference! Your entire family can come up with creative ideas as a group and have fun doing them together!

There are so many amazing ways you can give back and share in that happiness as a family. If you’re looking for more ideas, dig into our giving ideas for families.
