Be a world smile day ambassador #WorldSmileDay

On World Smile Day® 6th October,  the theme is “Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile!” expecially with so much negativity around at a time when some people are feeling insecure and uncertain about the future.

The story of world smile day

As is well known by now throughout the world Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts created the smiley face in 1963. That image went on to become the most recognizable symbol of good will and good cheer on the planet.

 

Harvey Ball created the smiley face. Harvey was concerned about  that the sheer commercialization of his little symbol would strip it of its original intent and meaning. It was out of this concern that he created World Smile Day, a day devoted to the spreading of simple joy and love to everyone, regardless of race, gender, or geographic location.

Harvey sadly passed from this world in 2001, but the foundation he helped create, the Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation, has carried forth his message of simple peace and love as the sponsor of World Smile Day every year. Whether you’re simply expressing a bit of silliness or doing a small act of kindness to help someone smile, World Smile Day is your opportunity to help brighten the world and make the world a better place through the simple power of the smile.

 

Everyone can make a difference on World Smile Day, just by being caring  and compassionate and helping those around them have the best day they  can have.
