The Laughter Project to Help the Homeless

We’ll be wearing masks in public for the foreseeable future. Why not make people laugh while we wear them? We could all use a little more laughter in the world… especially now.

A group of Manhattan Beach teens are working with local Redondo Beach, Ca printer, Creative Indulgence, to help raise funds for the 10,000 Lives Project by The Giving Spirit. Let’s Spread Laughter!

Buy a mask today! 

100% of the proceeds of these masks will be donated to help the Los Angeles homeless receive the essentials they need to stay safe during this pandemic. 

Give someone a “smile” with your mask. We guarantee you’ll make them laugh!

Owner of Creative Indulgence, Pierre Hoffman is the guy in charge of many of the South Bay public space signs we’re seeing around town, related to COVID. Creative Indulgence also creates indoor/outdoor signs for businesses. We met when he created my create sign for Ounce of Salt Jewelry. I was impressed with Pierre’s customer service and I’m thrilled his company is printing and donating fabric for this project. Thanks, Pierre!

Why The Giving Spirit?

giving spirit

My family has worked with the Giving Spirit for several years. We’ve volunteered during their winter and spring Outreach, where volunteers personally assemble and distribute “care duffle bags” to the Los Angeles areas’s homeless. To read more about our experience, read my blog post, Give Back with the Giving Spirit. 

If this first phase of fundraising goes well, Creative Indulgence will donate more printed mask material for this project! We would love your support in donating/purchasing masks and sharing The Laughter Project to everyone you know! 

These masks make great gifts and wonderful “greeting” masks for public service/business employees! We thank you for your consideration to support the Los Angeles Homeless during this difficult time. Let’s Spread Laughter!
