World Smile Day 2014 celebrates on 3rd October and theme is "Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile".

World Smile Day is celebrated on the first Friday of October every year. We celebrate this day to bring attention and help us remember the original mission of Smiley, to reflect what we all hope and wish to see on the face of others – a SMILE. On this day all the people around the world are thoughtful of others, use the power of smile and a little act of kindness make a small difference in the world in which we all live.

When it was started

In 1963, Harvey Ball, an artist from Worcester, Massachusetts created the yellow color smiley face. The image became the most recognizable symbol of good will and happiness on the planet. In 1999, Harvey Ball thought for a World Smile Day, when he found that his logo was becoming too commercial and losing its importance. He then declared that the first Friday of October every year, would be World Smile Day. He organized the day with the idea that we should devote one day every year to smiles and an act of kindness throughout the world. A smile knows no religion, no politics, and no geography and so we should spread happiness, moreover it does not take any effort to smile!

First World Smile Day held in 1999, since then it has continued every year. This year it will be celebrated on 4th October, 2013.

When Harvey died in 2001, the Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation was formed to honor him. The Foundation is the official sponsor of World Smile Day each year, and raise money through donations.
