Virtual event encourages ‘happy habits’
Friday, January 15, 2021 by Tai Moses
The whimsically named nonprofit Hi, How Are You Project is teaming up with American Campus Communities to host a multi-day online fundraiser to encourage people to establish “happy habits” that promote mental wellness in their daily lives. Tom Gimbel, co-founder of the project, said in an announcement, “It’s so exciting to see that we already have participants from more than 20 countries registered to participate in this year’s alternative online event to help raise funds for and awareness of the importance of mental health. It takes courage to break down the stigma around mental health issues, so we hope that by sharing easy-to-follow activities and helpful tips, Happy-Habit-a-Thon participants will be inspired to live healthy, balanced lives and also regularly check in on others.” Register here to participate in the Happy Habit-a-Thon, which kicks off on Friday, Jan. 22, and runs until Saturday, Jan. 31.
