World Smile Day

“Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile!” – World Smile Day slogan

Harvey Ball, creator of the smiley face, started World Smile Day to remind people what the smiley face really stands for: good will and good cheer. Ball thought that we should devote one day each year to smiles and acts of kindness, and thus declared the first Friday in October each year to be World Smile Day.

So, today, we ask that you spread acts of kindness to help others smile.  Smile at strangers you pass on the street, the grocery store clerk, your boss and, of course, your friends and family.
