Today, Global Happiness Organization, nominates Sam Simon as the 2013 US Happiness Promoter of the Year. Sam Simon, a writer, producer, and director best known for his work on the hit television show, The Simpsons, was sadly diagnosed with terminal cancer in late 2012. Rather than let his illness get him down, Simon has made some monumental advances in philanthropy, and began arranging to have his fortune left to a number of compassionate and advantageous charities. Simon’s own foundation, The Sam Simon Foundation, has made tremendous advances towards promoting happiness. From training homeless dogs as service animals for disabled war veterans, to serving strictly vegan, nutritious meals to needy families in Los Angeles, to even operating a mobile spay/neuter clinic for the pets low income families, the foundation does all it can to promote happiness and reduce suffering for those who need it most. In addition to his own organization, Mr. Simon has also utilized his fortune through many notable contributions to numerous charities including the Sea Shepherd Society, PETA, and Save the Children.
Even though Sam Simon is making long-term plans, he continues to fight for his life and remains optimistic about the future. “I’m not sad, I’m happy. I don’t feel angry and bitter. I want to do whatever I can to survive,” Simon is quoted as saying.
“I could not be more encouraged by Mr. Simon’s incredible altruism,” says Mandy Jade Kramer of Global Happiness Organization -US. “He is truly an example to everyone, and I am pleased and honored to offer the nomination of Happiness Promoter of the Year to such an incredible person, who continues to touch the lives of so many. His optimism, generosity, and happy outlook make him an inspiration to all. He is a most deserving recipient of this award”
