World Laughter Pledge
Remember how you feel after a good laugh?
Now imagine how the World would feel if we all laughed together!
So let’s do it!
Let’s change the World with laughter!
On Saturday 30th August, people laughed in North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Indian sub-continent and Australasia at 1pm GMT, crossing the World with laughter.
Everyone could join in, wherever they were, on their own or in groups.
Friends and family who live apart could link with laughter and remember each other.
Initiated by World Laughter Master, Belachew Girma (Laughter Therapist in Ethiopia and world record holder for continuous laughter at over 3 hours), and World Laugher Robin Graham (UK based Therapist, piloting ‘Laughter on Prescription’, and co-Founder of The Laughter Network), the pledge aims to get people of the World laughing together at the same time every Saturday - for a few seconds or a few minutes.
Belachew is living testament that people can laugh despite adversity. His wife was HIV+ and died some years ago, and his business was destroyed twice - by fire and by flood. Yet he has established the Ethiopian Laughter Day with support from his government and uses Laughter as a tool for healing.
