In 2017, we started the journey for a new nonprofit organization to support Laughter Yoga in the USA, in North America and around the world. Our first event held near Chicago, USA, in October 2017 was a success entirely because of our volunteers and Charter Members.

We want your participation for 2020 and beyond. Share your time and energy creating the next event, selecting scholarship recipients, selecting grant recipients and updating our website, newsletters and social media. 

Please contact Alexa Drubay for more volunteer information:
