Relaunching the World Laughter Pledge DAILY!

After a year growing and experimenting with times of day, we will relaunch the World Laughter Pledge as a DAILY LAUGH.

We invite you to laugh, sometimes alone and sometimes with others, as a way of starting your morning!

If we start the day with a laugh, our day will have more smiles.

The physiological changes will occur, helping us feel happier, more able to deal with challenges, and also boost our health.

We have heard from people in almost 40 countries who are laughing with the pledge. Now is the time to make this grow!

Thank you to those who have joined us in our first year! Now lets continue to spread the joy and peace around the world.
