MORE ABOUT ANDI and LEE...

happiness from within and began sharing this outlook on a homemade
website. As interest grew, spreadhappy.net became a
popular destination for those who shared Andrea's passion for

perseverance through her father's illness and his miraculous
recovery, Andrea found the next step in her journey by studying

FEED YOURSELF BY FEEDING OTHERS...
We live in a country where so many beautiful gifts are taken for
granted. It's the little things in life that mean so much to some.
Just an extra box of pasta, or package of diapers can be a
life-changer for many. We all have charities that we feel
passionate about and it is important to stick to what fills your
heart with love, joy, compassion and vision. I have a vision of
feeding one's soul, and feeding one's belly as well.
If you would like to clean out your cabinets, or buy an extra
item or two during your grocery run, please follow the link below
to find a local food shelter. Our basic needs as humans are food,
shelter and water… I guarantee when you pay it forward, your heart
is filled with love, happiness, gratitude and perspective.
