“The main goal of the Enjoy Life Community™ program is to bring ALL community organizations, groups and businesses together to focus on the needs of the community as a whole and not the problems; to encourage everyone to get involved; to spread the new of the good works community groups and people are currently doing; to eliminate the hopelessness that people feel; to eliminate the thinking that they are powerless and encourage them to believe that, as a community, we can achieve anything,” said Doreen Guma, Founder of the Time to Play Foundation.
“So many people are doing such great things in each and every community, but I have found that many people do not know what the are working on or the resources within the community available to them. Many times people feel hopeless and sit around and wait for “them” to fix things. I believe we are all people living together and it’s up to us to make things happen to benefit us all. Each Enjoy Life Community™ will become a “micro hub” where communities can create a wish list and everyone can “pitch in” so we can ALL enjoy life and make things happen. Nothing is impossible when we work together,” said Guma.
The “Welcome to our Enjoy Life Community™ signs that will be installed throughout the community is an important part of the program. The goal is for signs to be installed throughout the community to remind people of the importance to enjoy life, even if they are having a bad day; to trigger a positive momentum in the lives of all who live in the community; and to provide a positive visual focus to build community pride in the residents of the community. Additionally, goals for the program are to encourage community participation and decrease social isolation, especially in at risk members of the community’s population including youth, veterans and seniors.
“With all the negative news every day, there is no better time than the present to focus on the positive and what our community needs to enjoy our life, and to work together to make it happen,” said Doreen.
Additionally, the Time to Play Foundation has created an Enjoy Life Community™ project for corporate environments. “How many of us have experienced toxic workplaces during our working careers. We are at work longer than we are anywhere else in our day. It is proven that having a negative workplace severely impacts our quality of life and carries over into other aspects of our lives. The goal for the Enjoy Life Community™ program for corporate environments is to decrease the unhealthy work environments, increase teamwork, decrease use of sick time, increase productivity. There is great incentive for the business owners to implement this type of program as it not only produces a wonderful work environment for all involved, but ultimately will increase revenues in the workplace”, said Doreen.
The Enjoy Life Community™ project is sponsored by the Time to Play Foundation, a 501c3 not for profit corporation with the mission and purpose to enrich the lives of others through programs, public awareness outreach activities, events and learning opportunities that further the concept of enjoying life.
