Hey gang! We have been given the OK, to hold another Laughter Flash Mob, at the Asbury Plaza Hy-Vee, on the Monday before World Laughter Day! Woohoo! I am so excited for this opportunity. This will help us get the word out about World Laughter Day (May 5th)! Read on, and then help us build from last year's great event! Thank you!
- The Facts of Laugh
Where: Asbury Plaza Hy-Vee -- 2395 NW Arterial, Dubuque, Iowa, 52002
When: Monday -- April 29, 2013 -- Meet at 5:30pm, in the Michael's parking lot...with Laughter Flash Mob starting at 6:00pm (or just after).
Who: You and everyone you know. Everyone is welcome, and this means everyone: families (including children), singles, groups of friends, college students, high-school students, businesses, church groups, etc... No previous experience is necessary. I will show you everything, you need to know, when we meet at 5:30.
Why: to promote mental, physical, and emotional health, through laughter and mirth, and...a little bit of surprise. Hahahaha! To promote community, and to inspire others to laugh more often, just for the sake of laughter. Plus, it is so much fun. We had a blast last year!
My amazing friends, we all know that laughter is the best medicine. Laughter can heal and connect and build bridges between people. Science is proving, what we have always known, that laughing is good for us. Not only is it good for us, it feels good, too.
Our bodies work better, when we laugh. Our minds work better, when we laugh. Our spirits are renewed, when we laugh. Laughter can foster kindness and generosity, nurture creativity, and allow us to remember our blessings. Laughter is powerful, empowering, healing stuff. It is also highly contagious, especially in big groups...like a Laughter Flash Mob. Intrigued? Read on!
We need your help, to make this a spectacular event. We have a goal, of 60 to 70 people, for our Flash Mob, but I would love to have more than that. I believe we can do it. This is where you come in. As the phrase "Flash Mob" implies, the more, the merrier. That is the "Mob" part, of "Flash Mob" and the bigger the mob, the bigger the laughter...and the easier, it is, to inspire others to laugh.
That's what this is all about. A Flash Mob is a great way to get people's attention, and Laughter Flash Mobs are wonderful, for bringing people together, through laughter. Join me! Become a Laughter Catalyst, embrace the element of surprise, and help others remember how good it feels to laugh. And you know what is beautiful, about all of this? You are already an expert.
What's left? Please sign up, through this page, and join us! Please share this with your friends and family. Most importantly, show up, on Monday, and be a Laughter Catalyst! Be a leader! Make the commitment to be a messenger of laughter and healing and joy! See below, for more details, and feel free to call me, at (563)580-9779, if you have any questions. Thank you, for your support. I really look forward to laughing with you.

p.s. This is a working document. I will be adding to it, and streamlining, as I go. I wanted to get it up, and get the basic information to all of you. Blessings!
p.p.s. We are also looking for video and photos of this event. I would love to have multiple camera angles, and footage, to create something to put on YouTube. Let me know if you are interested or know of anyone who would want to help with this. Thank you
