Adam ran into Hoola on his USA bike tour

August 2014 – truthONION blog: Day 102- Ybor City & Tampa, spotlight Hoola for Happiness

Adam biked all over the USA and ran into Hoola for Happiness at one of our community hoop jams in Tampa...then he made the video below! :)

"Then we jumped on the trolly and took it downtown and walked a couple miles along the river. We ended up at a Curtis Hixon Park and saw some ladies with hula hoops and I had to try it out. I did a little hooping at the Forest Hostel in Georgia, so thought I might remember the hip motion. I am happy to say I kept it spinning and even tried an advanced move under the helpful tutelage of Carissa. When in town she does a Wednesday night hoop gathering in the park for anyone that wants to join in.

I interviewed her and learned that in 2010 she quit her job and started working full time “to spread the joy of hooping and the love of God all over the world through hooping projects and partnerships” through her organization Hoola for Happiness. I like the story about how she started the project. I don’t think it matters what your beliefs are when working to improve the lives of others."
