The Live Happii Project

The Live Happii Project is a Chicago non-profit that uses travel and a diverse array of holistic wellness practices to transform the lives of BIPOC youth.

What is Live Happii Week?

LHW is a fundraising event that aims to give adults an excuse to play and connect while also showing youth the benefits of holistic practices. Revenue from registration costs, raffles, and donations all benefit The Live Happii Project and their future events.

Mental health issues are rising rapidly, and inner-city BIPOC youth have reduced access to holistic wellness practices like yoga, qigong, meditation, and dance therapy. We teach them to seize control of their own health!

Most adults stop playing after grade school, leading to dissatisfaction and a lack of joy in their everyday lives. In Chicago, there is also minimal access to nature and green spaces, which exacerbates play inequity among youth. Live Happii Week aims to address this by promoting play for all ages, ensuring that both adults and youth have the opportunity to engage in joyful, playful activities in accessible green spaces.
