Museum of Happiness: A Happier, Kinder and More Playful World

Our friends at the Museum of Happiness have launched a crowdfunding campaign to help them to create a happier, kinder and more playful world.

They aim to raise £25,000 in order to open the world’s first dedicated Museum of Happiness in Camden, London. They’re offering amazing rewards for supporters – so through supporting them you will help a fantastic project and you’ll receive a brilliant new gift or experience too!

They have already passed the £15,000 mark, but they need your help to reach their goal!
