HAPPY WORLD SMILE DAY!!!
World Smile Day was created by Harvey Ball, a commercial artist who created the smiley face in 1963. The smiley face is an image that went on to be the most recognizable symbol of good will and cheer on the planet. The smiley face knows no politics, no geography, no religion and no race. Harvey’s idea was that at least for one day, neither should we.
In 1999, Harvey dedicated the first Friday in October each year to be World Smile Day. This is a day that ALL OF US can devote to smiles and acts of kindness throughout the world.
Harvey passed away in 2001. The Harvey Ball World Smile Day Foundation was then created to honor his memory and be the official sponsor of World Smile Day each year. Their goal is simple. To encourage smiles and acts of kindness around the world on World Smile Day. Join the celebration! “Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile!”
