THE HAPPIME STORY SO FAR...
HappiMe is a Community Interest Company set up to help spread the HappiMe Message. In 2012, I had breast cancer, lost my mum and found out my husband was having an affair. These events changed my life in so many incredible ways -it was the wake up call I needed. I decided to get fit & healthy (I lost over 6.5 stones), reduce the stress in my life (dumped the husband and started meditating), downsize my business and starting doing the things that made my heart sing - creating stuff to empower children, young people and adults to be the best (and happiest) they can be!
The idea for HappiMe came whilst I was going through my cancer treatment. It started as a simple mobile app and quickly grew into a much bigger project with books and personal development programmes for children and adults. HappiMe seemed to grow it's own legs and knew where it wanted to go! Everyone that has worked on the project so far, including myself, Abby & Amy, have volunteered their time, skills and expertise completely free of charge. We raised the £6000 to create the apps via a GoFundMe campaign and I have been absolutely overwhelmed by the help and support we have received (see our Gratitude list for our Supporters here) to make HappiMe happen.
The Vision is to make HappiMe self-sustaining by generating income through the adult version of the app, the HappiMe books and workshops for adults and children. Once we have launched the app and our first book in September, we are planning to apply for funding to help us spread the HappiMe message.
