The Happiness Project
Our 2019 choice for our No Cavity Club dollars was an easy
one! When our former JKD patient
presented us with the information on the Happiness Project, we couldn’t say
Maddie Green was selected to participate in the 2018-19
Innovation Fellowship Program, a collaboration between Sheboygan North High
School and Jake’s Cafe. After several weeks of brainstorming, Maddie decided to
embark on The Happiness Project, a project designed to address the serious
stressors that affect our community’s youth.
Maddie spent time speaking with students in the Sheboygan Area
School District as well as representatives from Mental Health America in
Sheboygan County. As a certified yoga instructor herself, she understands the
power of meditation, play, and beauty as therapy. Through collaboration with
Tryg Jacobson, president of Jake’s Cafe, local artist Jessica Rassel and Above
and Beyond Children’s Museum, they agreed that bringing beauty and happiness to
downtown Sheboygan in the form of a mural was the way to go.
The Above and Beyond Children’s Museum has always been near and
dear to our hearts, so participating in this project has been truly special. Next
time you are in downtown Sheboygan, you can look up at this extraordinary mural
and experience the Happiness Project for yourself!
The total donated was $10,514.20! WOW! That’s A LOT of great brushing and flossing!
Way to go JKD patients!
