There's Still Time to Spread Happiness With HoJo's The Give Happy Challenge

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - March 8, 2010) - Do-gooders throughout the U.S. and Canada have one week left to participate in Howard Johnson and the Harlem Globetrotters' The Give Happy Challenge, a multi-national contest promoting the spreading of happiness by offering participants the chance to win $15,000 for their chosen cause and a personal visit from the Harlem Globetrotters.

To enter the challenge, Give Happy contestants should visit and submit their entry via a video clip or an essay that illustrates how they were able to spread happiness. Entries will be accepted through March 15, 2010. Eight finalists will then be featured on beginning May 1, 2010, where voters throughout North America will be able to elect the winner.

The winner will be announced on or about June 21, 2010 -- the first day of summer and often touted as the happiest day of the year.
