About The Hunting Happiness Project
From a desire to bring profound healing to the world, Sara Lahey founded the Hunting Happiness Project in 2010. The project is entirely volunteer-based.
The organization has established a number of initiatives, which include short films intended to inspire.
Lahey’s signature “Love’n Aid” stands have been providing free gifts and services, and encouraging people to engage in acts of kindness. This inspirational initiative is contributing to a kinder, happier, and more peaceful world.
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission: “ideas worth spreading.” The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at more local levels.
TED’s celebrated format is a suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances on a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder — and to provoke conversations that matter.
TEDx events are meant to spark deep conversation and connections. TED is also known for bias-free programming, lacking of any commercial, religious or political agenda.
