Laugh-a-Minute for Mankind

Laugh-A-Minute for Mankind (LAMFM) is a new happiness and public awareness initiative from Australia that harnesses the power of laughter to increase happiness and well-being to all who participate. Its inaugural observance was officially granted ‘supporter status’ of the United Nations International Day of Happiness 20 March 2015. 

‘The General Assembly of the United Nations in its resolution 66/281 of 12 July 2012 proclaimed 20 March the International Day of Happiness recognizing the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world and the importance of their recognition in public policy objectives.

The United Nations invites Member States,  international and regional organizations, as well as civil society, including non-governmental organizations and individuals, to observe the International Day of Happiness in an appropriate manner, including through education and public awareness-raising activities.’


Our inaugural LAMFM was a wonderful success and has laid the foundations for an annual celebration across communities, across the nations on this very special day of happiness.
