Join in the fun  Past, Present and Future Giggleboxes!

Hello, Gigglebugs!

Laugh a little, Play a little, Do a little dance!

Well gang, It's that time of year again. World Laughter Week is quickly approaching, May 5-11. Celebrate with Springfield, MO and get yourself a clown nose and wear it off and on during work. Buy some for your co-workers, family, friends, students, etc. and have some fun being just a little bit silly for a change!
Remember to enter our on-line photo contest for prizes too!

April 4th was a HUGE RED LETTER DAY for Giggleboxes! We received delivery of our first 1000 Giggleboxes.
Here's a couple of shots of the big moment. Thanks to Brad Weber of Marlin House Publishing, De DeArmon from Unity of Springfield and Rob Clements from SOMO Containers and University Heights Baptist Church for the storage.

April 4th held another MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENT for us! We finally mailed in our application to the US Treasurey for our own tax-deductible status. Now we wait to hear if it was all filled in to their specs! Cross your fingers!
There are some other awesome things in the works, but you'll just have to wait and find out what great stuff is to come!
In the mean time, know you are loved and appreciated and thanks for your continuing support. Here's a fun video I found the other day! Remember to "Like our Facebook page if you want to get your Daily Giggle! (well, almost daily!)
