The Joy Project
The JOY Project. The idea is simple. Create and share reminders of positive thoughts with friends, family, and mostly strangers: Joy. I designed a simple charm/token to carry in a pocket, purse, or bag. Pocket Joy. Over the last four years, I’ve handed out over 8,000 to pretty much everyone I meet. In return, I’ve received many wonderful smiles and promises to share more JOY with others who may need it even more.
Joy Art Project
The JOY Art Project. After giving away so many Pocket Joys, it was time to try something different. I’m creating larger, collectible, very special Joys. Joy as art. Each Joy is packaged with an explanation and unique number and selectively handed out or mailed to perfect strangers around the country. If you received a unique Joy, you can find it by clicking the gallery link below and you wish, share a few thoughts about what gives you Joy in your life.
