Clown thanks district councillor for social/environmental service

Submitted by on September 19, 2013 – 4:35 pm One Comment

Tess and Martine smallTess the Clown has had her eye on Martine Bouillir, Tasman District Councillor, for six months.

A huge fan of Happyzine, back in February Tess pledged to give Martine “who is a really special person and encapsulates what Happyzine’s about too, she’s really into environmental change and community development and … how we can all live well on this planet” flowers and appreciation.  She said she would turn up on Martine’s door step once 77 people had joined Club Happyzine.

Happyzine has been transiting into a pay-what-you-can-afford website this year.

Happyzine has now reached and surpassed 77 members!  So Tess the Clown paid Martine a surprise visit at her house over the weekend.  Here’s the video of Tess turning up on her doorstep with a big bunch of flowers:

    Typical Tess, spreading the characteristic cheerfulness and generosity she’s known for, around other deserving people. I can’t get back to the Bay for now but it’s home and my long-term goal, and I miss it and its many wonderful people. Cheers for a great summer.
