Happy Skyscraper and cheerful organization
His model is on the Internet. Anyone willing can print, glue it, and then take it for a walk or a trip. And photograph in the next best-known place. Why do it? To become a member of the most cheerful organization in the world – the Good Humor Party.
The headquarters of the organization is in Europe. More precisely: in Warsaw, the capital of Poland. It was in Poland in 2001, that is over 20 years ago, that this extraordinary organization was established. Her mission is easy and at the same time very difficult. Party members would like people around the world to smile more often.
The fastest caricaturist from Poland
The organization was invented by the famous Polish satirist – Szczepan Sadurski. He is an event caricaturist who constantly sees smiling faces around him. He is called one of the fastest caricaturists in the world, because he draws one cheerful portrait for 100 seconds or less. His drawings are printed in newspapers, he creates illustrations for books, and appears in popular TV shows. For over 20 years, since 1991, he has been publishing several well-known magazines with humor and jokes in Poland. Dobry Humor (Good Humor) monthly had a circulation of over 200,000. He also does many other activities that make people smile. Currently, a film is being made about this famous caricaturist, which will be ready in 2023.
As you already know, Sadurski also invented a frivolous organization that is far from serious politics. “There are many funny parties, but only one is cheerful” – says the slogan of the Good Humor Party. Her membership fee is 3 smiles a day. And it has not yet happened that anyone has said that this is an unfeasible sentence.
Among the members of the organization are satirists and caricaturists from many countries of the world. But also people who are optimistic with a great sense of humor and like to laugh. Regardless of where they live, how old they are, what profession and skin color they have. They have one thing in common: they want to do everything possible so that people in the world have a happy life and smile more often.
Currently, the Good Humor Party has 6,000 members around the world, and its symbol – the Happy Skyscraper – advertises smile, optimism and the most cheerful organization in the world. The smallest traveler has already visited almost 700 cities in over 60 countries, on all continents, except for Antarctica. He really was photographed in all these places!
