It's Time to Smile as World Smile Day approaches 0

There isn't a person on this planet who wouldn't recognise a smiley face. It might feel that life didn't exist before this iconic image but in fact the smiley was only invented in 1963. Its inventor, Harvey Ball intended it to be a symbol of good cheer and goodwill and for that reason created a special day in October to celebrate acts of kindness and happiness. So with World Smile Day taking place on October 7th 2016, people all over the planet will be celebrating it with acts of kindness and generosity. Will you be one of them?

World Smile Day

If you want to join in the big event here are some ideas to get you started:

Individually you can celebrate World Smile Day by:

  • Delivering a home cooked meal to an elderly neighbour
  • Holding open a door for someone
  • Calling a friend you haven't spoken to in ages

As a group of friends or work colleagues you could perhaps organise:

  • A pie eating contest
  • Choral performances
  • A hospital Smiley event

You may have many other ideas and there really is no limit to what you can do. Acts of kindness can be large or small but they all make a difference, so whatever you choose to do, you can be sure it will have a positive impact on someone, somewhere.
