Keep Smiling Today and EVERYDAY!

October 2, 2015 – World Smile Day

wsd2The original ‘smiley’ was created by commercial artist Harvey Ball in 1963. Concerned about the commercialization of the iconic graphic, Harvey established Smile Day, which encourages you to participate in acts of kindness and to smile and make others smile. Since that first World Smile Day® in 1999, it continues every year in Smiley’s hometown of Worcester, MA and around the world.

Harvey Ball, and his creation.

On World Smile Day® the theme is “Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile!”.

Jake, aka The Seeds of Happiness Dog, is also a rescue dog.

This day has TWO goals: To honor dogs, and to rescue dogs from homelessness and abuse.

In addition to giving love and companionship, dogs help us out in countless ways. They are watchdogs for our safety. They lead the blind, aid in search and rescue, and seek out bombs and drugs.
