I started 10centlemonade.com about 4 years back and the roots were simple, I noticed a good number of people around me that were struggling with the holiday season and the original premise was to help find ways to promote happiness for folks struggling through what can be a mine field for many. The results were amazing and what I found is when I helped others find happiness that my own happiness benefitted exponentially.
I’ve learned a lot about happiness in these 4 years and have enthusiastically shared anything and everything that I felt might inspire happiness, anything from the deepest understanding to the simplest cartoon. I did all this with the premise that when one finds even the simplest happiness that the happiness can be exponentially duplicated and amplified by simply sharing the found happiness. It is kind of like a ripple effect that anybody can start that has infinite ability to spread happiness in ways we can only imagine.
For the last 4 years I’ve done 10centlemonade.com from my own pocket, it may seem on the surface that wouldn’t amount to a lot of money, the reality is between ad free hosting, the platform the website runs and the cost to promote the site through various advertising streams the cost is easily a few thousand a year. Costs are ongoing so the need is pretty immediate
It is my absolute priority to keep the website completely free and without advertising clutter which is why I started this gofundme . All donations will go to the cost and promotion of maintaining the website.
I can’t think of a better use of webspace than to help people find and then share happiness, surely it helps make the world a better place
I sincerely appreciate any help given. Thank you !
PS If anybody is wondering about the origins of the name 10cent lemonade it simply is reminiscent of a simpler, happier time
