Annual Report 2019

---- To all our Happy Donors, ¬°Gracias! There are honestly no words that can properly express how incredibly grateful we are for your support. I know, I know... I just used a lot of adjectives. But they were all necessary to communicate how happy and appreciative our whole team is. FYI. You can go through the slideshow above to see details about what we have accomplished. This year alone we saw our non-profit grow in every single area! Sales in our store (TheHappyGivers.com) continue to grow. We hosted more volunteers than ever in Puerto Rico. We brought clean water to thousand of people in the Bahamas. We began our work with migrants in Mexico. And we increased our support in...

Going To The Migrant Shelters

My friend Roberto was killed in Honduras recently. And I am heartbroken. Back in 2010 he hosted us, fed us, and welcomed us into his home. But the violence in his village prevailed. He was a good man. A family man.  A superb coffee farmer. And now, he is no more.  Dangerous scenarios like these are very real in Central America. And no matter where you stand politically on the immigration issue, one thing is for sure: something needs to change. For us who follow Jesus (and His ways) our calling and privilege is to serve those who are oppressed (while working toward the change). So next week, the Happy NPO is getting involved. We are joining a small group of...

Project Next

In 2017, I met my daughter. My wife and I began the process of adoption in 2011. And it was not till 2017 when I met our precious girl. While being with her I was overwhelmed with love for her... and pain for the other 21 kids in her orphanage. Who are their parents? What is their story? Who is their family?  Project Next began as a burning passion to make sure the next family would be fully supported to adopt the next child in waiting. Most followers of Christ are open to the idea of adoption, but the infamous high expense holds most people back even before they begin.  We want to eliminate the fear of going broke but substitute it with the overwhelming joy...
