What the World Needs Now is... Joy! (a 48-hour global event starting today)

Watch Mission: JOY in its entirety for FREE for 48 hours!

When the world is facing grave challenges, people of conscience DO something about it. In 8 hours from now artists, athletes, and thought leaders around the world are coming together to UNITE FOR JOY. Of course, you're invited!

Those of you participated in my Spring Screening Salon Series, Vulnerability & Connection got to connect with my Featured Guest, Peggy Callahan, the Producer & Co-Director of the film that we experienced together, Mission: JOY - Finding Happiness in Troubled Times..

We hinted at a 48-hour global happening that was in the works. Well here it is.. yet another demonstration of the power of group connection, but this time it will be at a global level:

  • For 48 hours starting today at 5pm PT / 8pm ET (or 2 in the morning in Paris, where I am now) people around the world can watchMission: JOY for absolutely FREE.

  • This is because the single request of the two subjects of the film, His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, was that their message be made available and accessible to people around the world.

  • And thanks Facebook and our growing list of Co-Hosts including: Sir Richard Branson, Forest Whitaker, Gloria Estefan, Cher, Kevin Love, Jay Shetty & Pat Mitchell that will happen.

As of this morning, the combined social media followings of our Co-Hosts was over 247 million people... and counting. That's because more are signing on by the hour.

3 ASAPs:

  1. RSVP here (by clicking the 'Going' button on Facebook).

  2. SHARE: Do as the Co-Hosts are doing & add some serious ripples.

  3. WATCH: During the 48-hour time frame, click on Mission: JOY's Facebook page to watch the film (June 2nd at 5pm Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) through June 4th at 5pm PDT)

Also, like the private discussion groups in my screening salons, everyone is invited to add their comments on the Facebook feed.

Peggy sent me and email update earlier today so see what she has to say below. Here's to the ripples that allow ideas and lives to expand!
