An artist hand-paints an empty Happy® Xmas tree canvas. The sculpture is financially sponsored by a company. The tree is then showcased around the holiday season, ending with a live auction for each tree. All of the money from the auction goes towards sustaining Happy Forest.
Each year a selection of the exhibited trees are made and then reproduced as a miniatures. By purchasing your very own Xmas tree, you plant a real tree in Mali, Africa.
The tree itself is a unique sculpture that doubles as an art canvas. Each one is designed and hand-painted by both upcoming and renowned artists with little to no limitations. We’re always looking for new artists to participate, professionals, students and amateurs alike!
Each year we host a public art event that showcases the happy Xmas trees for six weeks during the Christmas season ending with a live auction. We offer companies of all sizes the opportunity to take action and help our planet. See how you can be a part of happy.
All the profits from the auction go towards sustaining our forest in Mali, Africa. Bringing bright opportunities to the local farmers and population in Mali. You can support us by purchasing a Happy Xmas tree and planting an actual tree in our Happy Forest!
“...In I visited Mali along with some colleagues from the Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, and was given a very positive impression of the goodwill in the country. I find it admirable that Happy® Xmas Trees has decided to donate the surplus from their auction to plant Jathropa trees in Mali.”
“...This project not only advances the cultural integration, it is also one of the solutions to a global environmental issue; it is a fantastic event for culture, and it advances sustainable business growth in some of the worlds poorest countries. This is as good as they get. I recommend this project to you most cordially.”
“Social entrepreneurs around the world are offering new models of positive change by blending, generating or evenrenewing the use of four kinds of capital to create sustainable value. Happy® Xmas Trees is a great example of how aesthetic, environmental, social and financial capital can go hand-in-hand as a contribution to a better world.”
We're always looking for happy people to collaborate with.
