Las Vegas –A group of people with smiles on their faces and colorful picket signs in their hands descended upon Downtown Vegas on Friday. However, they weren’t there to protest anything.

The positive rally, or “reverse picket”, was organized by Delivering Happiness, a movement that was born from the similarly-titled book by Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh.

Clair Byrd works in Delivering Happiness’ CHAT department, which stands for Community Happiness Action Team. She explains that after the book launched, it was turned into a bus tour to see what type of people were actually reading the book. They were expecting it would be mainly business professionals, but were surprised to find that teenagers, grandmothers, teachers, lawyers, nurses, and a gamut of other people were reading it as well. That discovery spurred the movement, whose goal it is nudge the world to a happier place.
