This week's Badass Chick is Anne Lafleur, creator of The Gift of Happiness, which is a movement to encourage human connection. 

 

Anne studied psychology at Brown and received her Master's of Social Work from Boston College. She also worked at MIT for over a decade but it was her volunteerism in hospice care that opened her eyes to what she wanted to dedicate her life to: encouraging people to deeply care about others without feeling self conscious. 

 

Anne started a project called Signs of Kindness, which is a really simple concept: they're yard signs with the phrases "You are loved," or "You are needed," or "You are worthy," etc. They're $20 per sign, her goal is to get them into all 50 states and she's already halfway there. 

 

I love Anne's message very much. She said that we all have so many voices in our heads, and some are kinder and more productive than others. So she hopes that by driving past a sign and seeing the encouraging words, our kinder voices in our heads are nudged to the forefront.
