Hello Tweedy Fam!
It's that time of the year again when we all have an extra reason to spread joy and happiness. October 5th is just around the corner, and guess what? It's not just any ordinary day; it's World Smile Day and Do Something Nice Day! 🌞😊
Let me take you on a journey into the history of these heartwarming days and share some wonderful ideas on how you can make someone's day brighter.
World Smile Day: The Heartwarming Origins
World Smile Day was initiated by Harvey Ball, the creator of the iconic smiley face. Back in 1963, Harvey designed the smiley face to boost morale among employees of an insurance company. His simple yet powerful symbol has since become a universal sign of happiness.
In 1999, Harvey Ball declared the first Friday of October as World Smile Day. He wanted to dedicate a day to encouraging acts of kindness and making people smile all around the world.
Do Something Nice Day: The Spirit of Giving
Do Something Nice Day, on the other hand, encourages us to perform random acts of kindness and make the world a better place. It's about going the extra mile to show compassion and empathy to those around us.
Now, let's get to the fun part—how we can celebrate these heartwarming days as part of the Tweedy community!
Spread Smiles with Tweedy: Ideas for World Smile Day
Share a Compliment: Give someone a sincere compliment. Whether it's a friend, colleague, or a stranger, your kind words can brighten their day.

Do Something Nice: Tweedy's Suggestions
Donate Clothes: Clean out your wardrobe and donate gently used clothing to a local charity. Your old favorites could become someone else's treasures.

Volunteer Your Time: Offer your time and skills to a local community organization. Your efforts can help create positive change.
Smile at Strangers: A simple smile can brighten anyone's day. As you go about your day, share your smiles freely.
