Abstract

Mission

Happy Thoughts aims to encourage and inspire more people to do more good in the world.

Vision

Happy Thoughts aims to put good news into the world to inform and inspire those who think the world is full of too much bad news. Our stories focus on positive things people are doing, successful nonprofits, volunteer opportunities, and more.

Founder

Sarah Nelson is the founder of Happy Thoughts. Nelson is a December 2017 graduate of the University of Iowa, where she pursued a major in Journalism and Mass Communication, an English minor, and a Fundraising and Philanthropy Communication certificate. She was encouraged to get the certificate because of her passion for volunteering and doing good, and she thought the certificate would be a good way to possibly make a career out of that passion.
