2) Happiness! Australia (HA) Cheering Up! Rural Australia (2024-2025)

This project is to visit struggling rural Australia and remind them they are not alone and that we can have a laugh and let go of the stress that is a constant these days. This is a program that reminds every Australian that Happiness is the real wealth of the nation. Here is an example of the rural people. We cannot imagine how they feel when they confront no rain or floods, changing government policy, low prices and loss of their family businesses. The young people end up leaving towns.

Bureau of Meterology http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/drought/

This initiative is to bring Happiness! Australia presentations, Fun-ships, conflict resolution and happiness techniques to the rural communities. Like this artist he was singing up the rain. Maybe when positive people get together anything is possible.

HA will be visiting those who need a laugh, who want to clown around and want to turn their lives around and beat the flood of unhappiness that is the real dis-ease in our nation.

Australians are known for their sense of humour and happy go lucky attitude to life. This project is to reconnect to the class clown in all of us.

Invitation to Rotary

Letter: Introduction Letter to Rotary

Proposal: Happiness Australia Cheering Up Rural Australia Rotary Proposal

A Video for Rotarians highlighting Susan’s peace work, experience, her book and the importance of the Fool and REAL HOPES.  Paul Harris was a wise fool.  Note:  I am not a scary clown but a real fun one.  Face it – you are all clowns but in denial.  I grew up joking around.  That is who we are.

Invitation to Community Groups and Supporters:

Happiness Australia Cheering Up Rural Australia Communities Proposal final

The wisdom of the Fool is to ‘know thyself’ to realise life is the experience where we are all mastering our foolishness. The wise remember that what we do to another returns to the self. So to cause harm becomes self-defeating or harming yourself. It is wise to become self reflective and ask ‘how would I feel if that was me’? Will the action cause harm or benefit?

3) REAL HOPES 4 Kids (Values, Anti-bullying)

Values based education aims to bring real happiness to children in times where they feel fearful and disconnected from who they are. Happiness is critical for peace in our world, otherwise children become disconnected and indifferent to each other. Depression, anxiety and stress arise when children feel powerless and lose the sense of real meaning in their lives.

The REAL HOPE program is a values based, peace nonviolence and anti-bullying program.  REAL HOPE is an acronym for:  Responsibility, Empathy, Awareness, Love, Honesty, Oneness, Peace and Enjoyment.  REAL HOPE is a program where life skills, emotional intelligence, positive psychology and peaceful behaviours are developed and integrated over a 8 week program.  For short visits Susan could offer specific values the school wants to focus on.
