CLEARWATER, Fla., March 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On March 23, 2019, The Way to Happiness (TWTH) Association Tampa Bay is hosting their 4th Annual “International Day of Happiness Celebration” at the historic Fort Harrison in downtown Clearwater. The event is in honor of the International Day of Happiness, a resolution for which was formally adopted by all 193 members of the United Nations in 2013 and calls for happiness in the world to be given greater priority, every March 20th. The first International Day of Happiness was launched with Ndaba Mandela, grandson of the late President Nelson Mandela of South Africa.
Speakers at TWTH March 23rd event will include a retired Pinellas County School Board member, a Broadway Producer and a Youth Art Club Director who will share testimonies of how they create happiness in their communities.
The Executive Director of The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay, Ms. Tanja Cranton stated, “You can’t buy happiness even if you have all the money in the world. Happiness is priceless. Imagine for one moment if everyone in the world were truly happy! I think we would see a very different world than the one we live in today.”
The Way to Happiness book, authored by Mr. L. Ron Hubbard, contains 21 non-religious, common sense guidelines to help them make choices that will lead to a happier life. One quote from the book explains its purpose, “Aside from personal benefit, one can take a hand, no matter how small, in beginning a new era for human relations. The pebble, dropped in a pool, can make ripples to the furthest shore.”
TWTH Association Tampa Bay has distributed over 200,000 booklets in the past 12 months alone, recording a drop of up to 70% in crime in one neighborhood where the book was passed out hand-to-hand.
The Way to Happiness is one of nine humanitarian outreach programs sponsored by the Church of Scientology (http://www.scientology.tv).
