Dear Friends and Laughter Yogis,

Oh no, it looks like it will be rainy this Sunday! Well we won’t let that ruin are fun, will we? Heck no! We have secured a lovely indoor location- the Providence Friends Meeting House, 105 N.Providence Rd., Media, PA , which is the ideal setting, considering Quakers are peace loving groups and our celebration is all about promoting peace. VG, VG, YAY!

This will be the 5th year that the Philadelphia Area Laughter Club will be sponsoring and hosting World Laughter Day!

We are so excited about this event and hope that you will join us. If you cannot make it, look for another celebration near you, create your own celebration where ever you are or

just be mindful to laugh this Sunday and to think of everyone around the globe participating in this event.

Here are some more details about the event:

and a little promo video showing scenes from past WLD celebrations.


This special day was created by Laughter Yoga Founder Dr. Madan Kataria to promote world peace through laughter. What an extraordinary vision he had, to bring people of all ages and

backgrounds together to connect through deep belly laughter! Just imagine thousands of people sending out positive energies and this will cause a powerful ripple effect throughout the world. Good vibrations.

Media, PA Mayor Bob McMahon returns to offer opening remarks and has written a special proclamation to mark the day.

There will be music, singing, dancing, laughter and a peace mediation led by Certified Laughter Yoga Leader and Reverend Edie Weinstein.

Thanks to all of our volunteers who helped to get the work out about this event and who will be present to lend a hand- Jakki Hines (PR), Carole Netter ( PR), Erdinc Oktay ( Social media, Drums & Music), Emma Medina-Castejon (photography),   Eric Davison (drone aerial photography, photo and videography) .

Thanks to our other sponsors, Repatriation Group International, who makes sure we have water and helps each year with our logistics.

Fruit & Snacks provided by Trader Joe’s, Skinny Pop & Herr’s.  The winner of the laughter competition gets a surprise Wawa gift basket containing lots of goodies.

Thanks to our hosts, Delaware County Parks & Recreation, as well as Providence Friends Meeting offering special outdoor/indoor venues.

And let’s not forget the many regional  Laughter Yogis and Laughter club members who have joined us in the past and new participants who wish to experience the beauty of sharing unconditional laughter.

Sending gratitude laughter to all of you,

Alexa & the Philadelphia Area Laughter Yoga Club/Team
