What you're funding

It's an exciting time at Reasons to be Cheerful as they look to re-open and expand in 2021 in a big way! This campaign will fund new product lines in ice cream and sweets while making all the Reasons to be Cheerful available across the Greater Boston area. Seeing the Chillwagon's success, Philip and the team are looking to add a new vehicle to the cheerful wagon fleet and bring their scoops to more locations across Massachusetts. With the new Chillwagon, Reasons to be Cheerful will be available for events, birthday parties, weddings and any other reason to bring people together. After a tough 2020, we're all looking for even more Reasons to be Cheerful into the future!

About Reasons to be Cheerful

Reasons to be Cheerful was established in 2011 and grown by Philip Rosenfield starting in 2018, with the hope of bringing more Reasons to be Cheerful to people in the Concord and Hudson areas and beyond. After all, what brings more smiles than an ice cream cone?

Reasons to be Cheerful's homemade and hand scooped ice cream is now also available through the "Chillwagon," a converted 1948 milk truck. The Chillwagon means you'll have several options to satisfy any sweet craving from your morning latte to after dinner ice cream and cookies.

All of Reasons to be Cheerful's ice cream is made by hand, on-site, and in small batches. New flavors are made every day alongside the 28 usuals. That means that if you don't see your favorite one day, it may be there the next! Be sure to grab it in one of the hand packed quarts or pints to take it home and save for later. Every flavor is also available in soft serve and there are plenty of toppings to give you every reason to be cheerful!


  • I don't live in Massachusetts, can I still contribute to the campaign?

    Yes! Anyone in the US can contribute to the campaign. Please be aware you'll only be able to use your credits toward your visits to the Boston area in the future.

  • When will I receive my credits?

    If the campaign goal is met, we'll email you a code for your first credits one month after the campaign closes. You'll get more credits every month for one year.

    If the campaign goals aren't met, we'll return any amount contributed to the card you used to submit.

  • How do I use my credits?

    Simply enter the code you receive by email when checking out at Reasons to be Cheerful online or in-store. Your credits will expire one year after you receive them. We want you to enjoy more of the ice cream, coffee and sweets we've all come to love from Reasons to be Cheerful.

  • Does the ice cream really make you cheerful?

    You're already smiling thinking about it πŸ™ƒ
