wall faqs:

  1. Will Live Happy be providing me with a physical wall or do I have to build my own? 
    Live Happy will not be shipping physical walls to locations for IDOH 2017. Wall Hosts are required to build their own walls. You can download instructions on how to build a wall here. Have fun with it, be creative!  
  2. What size does the wall need to be? 
    Ultimately the size of the wall is dependent on the wall host, but we recommend the wall be 10 feet wide by 7 feet high if you plan to have around 1000 attendees at the wall. 
  3. Can I get reimbursed for materials that I purchased to build my own wall? 
    Live Happy will not be issuing any reimbursements on materials you purchase to build your own wall. 
  4. Am I allowed to have extra activities at my wall? If so, are there any restrictions I must abide by? 
    You are more than welcome to have extra activities happening at the wall; we just ask that you abide by the rules of the location. You should not have anyone selling products or services at your wall event—this is a day to spread happiness!
  5. What days should I host my happiness wall since March 20 falls on a Monday?
    The ‘official’ day to host a wall the weekend prior to March 20 is on Saturday, March 18.
  6. Do you have music I can play at my wall?
    We have created a Spotify Playlist to celebrate the International Day of Happiness! You can add us on Spotify by visiting our page or by searching our profile name LiveHappyMagazine on the Spotify app. We have multiple playlists but one specifically created for the International Day of Happiness with 4 hours of tunes. Put the playlist on shuffle and repeat and enjoy the happy tunes throughout your day!
