OUR MISSION

The Happiness Project’s Mission is to spread love and happiness to children in need by providing the life essentials they desperately need and deserve.

We are starting right in our own backyard in Orange County, CA.  With over 10,000 homeless and hungry children, we could not wait another day to start informing our neighbors and raising money to help change this. 

Our goal is to improve the lives of these children in need by raising money and gathering gifts that will allow them to live a healthy life, be able to attend school, never go unfed and to have a bright future with many opportunities.
