Today is World Smile Day! This was originally created by Harvey Ball, the artist who created the original “smiley face” icon that became popular on signs, billboards, clothing, and other items. After the initial popularity of the smiley face, Mr. Ball wanted to create a day devoted to the true meaning of giving a smile. World Smile Day’s theme is simple:
Do an act of kindness. Make one person smile.
That doesn’t sound so difficult! This goes along with our Boomerang principle, except that World Smile Day is all about acts of kindness without expecting anything in return.
