What we're about

#HappyAKL is a community of people wanting to make their city a happier place!

From Random Acts of Kindness, Free Hugs to Laughter Yoga - we create, share & support events that spread happiness, kindness & compassion.

Currently in Auckland we’ve got:

Monthly Free Hug Events

We’ve also collaborated with a few organisations to share kindness, compassion and happiness. I.e Splore Festival, Youthline, and are open to supporting others!

Free Hugs; People coming together to and holding Free Hugs signs, sharing hugs with strangers, sharing a moment of connection, love & appreciation.

Even the simplest act of kindness, acknowledgement or appreciation can make all the difference in someone’s life.

It’s a movement that is open to all,

Pop-Up Gratitude Station - A joyful interruption

Albert Park

Our first pop-up event: Gratitude Station is an opportunity for people to write / craft a letter to their friends / loved ones or even strangers! We will be setting up a craft station in Albert Park on Sunday 30th June and we would love for you to join us! Pop by and write a letter for someone to share your gratitude, bring a friend to help make Auckland a bit more joyful! The idea for this event & to create pop-up moments of joy in AKL, was born out of our group brainstorming dinner last week. Come join us next time to create and be involved in creating projects and more moments of joy, kindness and happiness in the city.
