Our mission statement

The beauty of Madhappy is that each person can have their own interpretation of it. In our opinion, Madhappy is the essence of life: two words coming together to create a life-like existence. It's about the ups and downs and everything in between. It is recognizing that everything isn't perfect because it shouldn't be. It is realizing that the lows make the highs that much more pronounced. It is seeing that the obstacles in life are actually what life is truly about. We must pursue a better version of ourselves and the world around us while still recognizing that everything is fine just as it is. Sometimes we're mad. Sometimes we're happy. However in spite of this all, or maybe because of it all, we can always be Madhappy.
