Committed to laughter and joy of life
We are thrilled about the nomination and see a great opportunity to use the award to show the importance of commitment to laughter and joy in life. Many laughter yogis from Germany and Austria have jointly launched this project to create uncomplicated, easy access to laughter. Every day we hear on the phone how important the number has become for our callers. Our “regular laughers” get their little moment of happiness every day on the phone, their voice training, their cardiovascular activation or the joyful, happy contact with us, who are usually just as happy to laugh with the callers.
Chance to win up to 10,000 euros in prize money
The audience prize is endowed with 10,000 euros. The top 50 winners of the vote also win participation in a joint training seminar in Berlin. If they win, the Laughter Phone would use the prize money for its charitable purposes.
We would be very happy if you voted for us and helped us collect votes! If you need material or have ideas, please feel free to write to us, just send an email to email@example.com
