Traveling spoon around the World

And here comes what Spoons for Happiness is all about! The traveling Spoon!

Throwback: In a period of really low mood my mum brought me a nice wooden spoon which we arranged with an adorable face to cheer me up. At first I just liked the idea of a funny spoon, making the bitter experiences with chronic illness a bit lighter. But I wanted to give it a special meaning and therefore added a green loop. Green, because in the Germany the color is associated with hope & life and this is exactly what I needed back then.

After more than a year of fighting for my health with frustration, I realised there is a specific reason for me being sick. And that is raising awareness for chronic illnesses and helping spoonies feel less alone.

Not much later I woke up with the idea of the traveling spoon and as always got totally excited about my idea. Thanks to the illness I learned to never let anyone’s doubts stop me from making my dreams come true. And that’s exactly what I am doing here.

The first traveling spoon was designed only a few days after I had the idea and can easily be identified. It is this adorable wooden spoon with the most lovely face you have ever seen and a loop. This is the very first traveling spoon. Let’s call it Mr. Spoon. Besides Mr. Spoon there are fellow spoons to may reach as many spoonies as possible and to make it all a bit more funny, these younger Spoons have different loops.

Mr. Spoon is traveling around the world from spoonie to spoonie and in his bag he always has a little gift to cheer the spoonies up. He travels in different ways: from hand to hand, via mail and so many more.

What if you are sitting here right now with Mr. Spoon by your side and wondering what to do now? Well, that’s quite simple. Take a picture with Mr. Spoon and tell us a bit about you, your story, where you were with Mr. Spoon and how you got him.

Send a message with your story, photo and your hometown to me, by using the contact form below!
But that’s not all! The journey has to go on!
Write some lovely words or add a special gift to Mr. Spoon’s bag, get in contact with spoonies, find out whom Mr. Spoon can make happy now. And then let the journey go on!*

If you did all this: Congratulations and a huge thank you from the spoonie community.
Share spoonsforhappiness.com with as many people as possible, get active with comments or write a guest article to raise awareness for chronic illnesses! Whatever you do, it helps!

Best wishes and a hug
Theresa Laura, Mr. Spoon & the team
