Open Happiness Week

Open Happiness Week is a collaborative effort between BET Networks and Coca-Cola to provide joy to deserving young individuals by giving them the opportunity to fulfill one of their dreams. Throughout the week of November 14th 106 & Park will highlight these "moments of happiness" on its show. This year’s recipients include Bianca Darby Bell, Dayonna Williams, Jeremy Maldonado, Joseph Foster, and Latoya Wade. Bell received an annual college scholarship from the Shawn Carter Foundation, Williams aspires to be a Hollywood actress, Maldonado is presently a member of The Fellowship Institute, Foster hopes to organize an anti-bullying fundraiser, and Wade is a single mother raising her two-year-old son while still getting her education. Whether it’s giving someone the chance to participate with 106 & Park for the day, receiving money for college, or a shopping spree—the overarching goal of this opportunity is to "open happiness" in people’s hearts.
