Welcome to World Smile Day, an awareness day that was originated by Harvey Ball, the artist behind the Smiley, in 1999. The idea was to ‘devote one day each year to smiles and kind acts throughout the world’ and he declared that the first Friday of each October should be dedicated to exactly this.
When Harvey died in 2001 the Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation was created to honour his memory and part of this has been the continuation of World Smile Day each year. The Foundation encourages everyone to get involved and ‘Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile’.
This year on World Smile Day the CODE team will be at the Dental Showcase but that won’t stop us celebrating! We’ll be on hand with special offers that are bound to put a smile on your face, and if that doesn’t cut the mustard, we’ll be dishing out free hugs too! Come and see us on stand N28!
