Who We Are

The Sunny team envisions a world where everyone can thrive in meaningful relationships.

A trusted resource

Despite daily digital interaction, we are more isolated than ever in real life. That paradox was the inspiration for Sunny. What has been missing for many of us is a trusted resource to offer ideas, guidance, and tools that promote richer and more meaningful personal relationships.

Our Team

Funding and support for the Sunny initiative is provided by the Barnes Family Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization based in Bethlehem, PA. The Sunny platform and app are made free of charge to individuals as a public service.
