The ‘Make ‘Em Laugh’ Campaign
“Laughter is the language of the soul.” — Pablo Neruda
Supporting Families Together Association (SFTA) strives for every child to grow up in a place where they feel safe and loved. This means that their basic needs are met and they feel free to learn and explore, to ask questions, to make messes and mistakes, and, of course, to laugh. It doesn’t take much. SFTA asks you to help us give more children the chance to chuckle, giggle, guffaw, shriek, snort, and cackle with our “Make ‘em Laugh’ Campaign.
The goal of the ‘Make ‘em Laugh’ Campaign is to highlight how important each moment of a child’s early stages are in developing the person they will become. Early childhood is a time of rapid brain development, where every experience, interaction, and relationship adds up to shape who you are. The simple act of making a child laugh fires off signals in their brain and body that over time, and even in that one moment, can make that child a happier, healthier, more emotionally centered person. And it’s great for adults too! How can you not laugh along? So, let’s ‘Make ‘em Laugh!’ Please share photos and videos of your child, niece, nephew, grandchild, the kid next door, your student—any child who is a part of your life—laughing. You can be in the video too, or just in the background making silly faces, sounds, or songs to make the magic happen. We welcome videos/photos from anyone—you don’t have to be a Wisconsin resident to share! Videos can be posted to the SFTA Facebook page, or shared by contacting us through GoFundMe. Once you post your video (or photo), make a donation of your choosing to our “Make ‘Em Laugh” Campaign so that SFTA can continue supplying supports that keep young children and their families learning and laughing. You don’t have to post a video or photo to donate!
