“For the first time in a long time I nearly leaped out of bed this morning, inspired, amazed and amused by my fabulous friends at AATH! Thank you all for your kindness, enthusiasm, playfulness, courage and love. Many blessings as you continue to spread the healing benefits of humor and laughter in a world that desperately needs you (that includes me!).” -- Heidi Hanna
“Hi All, I can't express the gratitude that I feel for this group and everyone in it! Thank you for being there and doing all you've done to promote and expand the science and benefits of laughter, humor and joy! You have made it so much easier and fun for those of us following in your BIG SHOES! What a wonderful weekend at the AATH Convention. I felt so welcome and part of an amazing family of Joy Makers from around the World. I have returned home with so many great new things to share, I am ready to bust! The Giggle Box Project loves you all and looks forward to what is to come. Thank You!” -- Susan Dempsey
