Did you know that today is World Smile Day?
Ball chose the first Friday in October to celebrate World Smile Day. The first World Smile Day was held in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1999. According to Ball,
“the smiley face knows no politics, no geography and no religion . . . for at least one day each year, neither should we.”
World Smile Day’s slogan “Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile!” is one of the best sayings anyone could chose to live by.
If you’re looking for a reason to perform an act of kindness with a smile on your face, today is the perfect day to get your Smile On!
