Samaritans reducing suicide by increasing happiness


“Samaritans is a non-denominational, not-for-profit volunteer organization dedicated to reducing suicide by increasing happiness.” Currently they are sponsoring an initiative to make Boston happier. So far they have brought about smiles by high-fiving in the 5th inning, giving out free oranges, singing a cappella in elevators, advertising happy spots, and holding welcome parties for commuters. Let us hope they start a trend in other cities, because I would love to see this in NYC.
