So summer is all but over and the nights are starting to draw in. At The 5Star VA we feel it’s that time of year when we all start to feel a bit down and sorry for ourselves. That lull before the great Christmas rush!
Fear not, The 5Star VA has a plan! World Smile Day is here, it’s on Friday 7th October 2016! We all know and love the smiley face. Created by Harvey Ball way back in 1963. It’s an iconic figure especially in the Emoji world. Harvey died in 2001 and ever since then World Smile Day has been used to honour and celebrate his memory.
It’s a day to do something selfless. To make someone else smile. It doesn’t have to be a big or expensive thing. Just a gesture. It really doesn’t take much to make someone smile if you really put your mind to it. It could be anything from donating money to a good cause, to helping an old lady cross the road. Or maybe buying your significant other flowers, just because. If you’re in business you could send a gift to a client or take a staff member out to lunch. If everyone took the time to make just one person smile on Friday it would give us all that lovely warm and fuzzy feeling we don’t always have over the winter months.
So come on guys, embrace the smile. What will you do to make someone’s day?
