What does ALL BE HAPPY mean?
ALL BE HAPPY is a vision we have about the way we know things can be. It’s about being conscious of what we do and how we do it. It’s about discovering everyday what we don’t know and doing better the next. ALL BE HAPPY is the beautiful reality below the surface that’s waiting to shine through. The founders of Laughing Man believe that many of the problems we see in the world today come from a great disconnect people experience between each other. By increasing our awareness of those around us, a natural sense of connection and interest in the well being of other grow.
