After taking to the streets with friends and holding up positive posters to passers-by and seeing peoples happy reactions, I had the Idea to implement these positive posters on a more permanent basis - on billboards and advertising spaces!

People were truly moved by our positive signs and I believe having these happy slogans on billboards will lift the spirits of those who read them and perhaps when they continue their day and pass others by, they in turn will lift their spirits…then maybe, just maybe, the whole city could be lifted….if only for a moment.

If you want to help lift Sydney's spirits and see these happy billboards, then jump on board and support this Happy Billboard Project.
You can support either by:
Donating money (via Pozible), sharing this campaign through social media, or donating free advertising spaces.

Love, Laughter and Happy for all.

Some Of My Previous Work

The Happy Billboard Project was inspired by my group Spreading Happy
www.facebook.com/spreadinghappy

And Spreading Happy was inspired by my old job - dancing as a giant Termite called Terry.
This is where I became addicted to making people smile.

The Challenges

Firstly this campaign is backed by the guys at The Happy Project.
www.happyproject.com.au

They will be lending a potential $12,000 to the most successful campaign (this is one of two they have chosen to be in the draw for their funding). If this campaign is the most successful then there will be an added $12,000 to what ever amount we can raise here at Pozible.

In order to win this campaign and be eligible for the $12,000 grant, we need the greatest amount of pledgers and social media shares. I am in competition with the beautiful Hailey, who's work is incredibly inspiring and I feel blessed just to be able to work along side her.

The challenges we face are not raising enough to generate the most impact i.e buying as many adverting spaces as we can. Advertising space is expensive and the more we raise the better the impact…Also, the more we share this campaign through pozible and other social media avenues, the better chance this idea has in winning the added $12,000!! So exciting!

Another obstacle is the fact that space might not be available at the same time. The best impact would be to purchase all mediums of advertising (listed above) and implement them at the same time, for greatest impact - like a one-off Art-Installation. These advertising timelines will be known closer to the project unfolding.
