It’s World Smile Day® !!

The World is a scary, sad place lately, but we must never, ever lose our ability to smile, laugh, and to do kind things for others! We need it NOW more than EVER! Who better than a “Smiling Sheltie” to help spread the love on World Smile Day®  ?? TAG! You’re it. Now you have to “Do an act of kindness.Make one person smile!

 

History of World Smile Day
“It was a simple thing, a circle with a few dots and an upturned curve, but put together Harvey Ball created one of the most iconic symbols the world had ever seen, and it would quickly come to infect everything from graffiti to modern-day emoji’s. We are, of course, talking about the smiley face, arguably the first emoji to enter the world. Harvey would later express concern 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.”
