Happy World Smile Day!
Do an act of kindness, make someone smile today!
Way back in 1963 a man called Harvey Ball created the famous smiley face. This iconic symbol has been used in thousands of guises and was a big part of the rave culture of my teens.
After many years Harvey became concerned about the over-commercialization of his little symbol, and how its original meaning had been lost.
World Smile Day® was born. His idea was that we should all devote one day each year to smiles and acts of kindness.
The smiley face knows no politics, no geography and no religion. Harvey’s idea was that for at least one day each year, neither should we.
World Smile Day® is held on the first Friday of October every year.
Hope you can make lots of people smile today.
