A Message of Hope, Decency and Respect for International Day of Friendship
Volunteers with The Way to Happiness Foundation in Seattle reached out to their community, celebrating Friendship Day with the common-sense moral code that helps create lasting friendships by instilling decency and respect.
In the spirit of friendship, volunteers from the Church of Scientology and the Seattle chapter of The Way to Happiness Foundation passed out copies of The Way to Happiness on Friendship Day 2023 at the Seattle Center, home of the iconic Space Needle.
Written by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard, The Way to Happiness is a common-sense moral code containing 21 basic principles for a better quality of life. Nonreligious in nature, this booklet is used by people of virtually every culture and creed and empowers individuals to help others and make a difference in their neighborhoods and beyond.
“The Way to Happiness is part of our campaign to uplift neighborhoods in the greater Seattle area and in communities around Washington state,” said the group’s coordinator. “It forms a guideline that anyone can use to create a better life.”
The volunteers carried out this initiative to celebrate International Day of Friendship, proclaimed in 2011 by the UN General Assembly with the idea that “friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities.”
“To mark the International Day of Friendship the UN encourages governments, international organizations and civil society groups to hold events, activities and initiatives that contribute to the efforts of the international community towards promoting a dialogue among civilizations, solidarity, mutual understanding and reconciliation.”
The Church of Scientology and its members are proud to share the tools for happier living contained in The Way to Happiness.
