The intent of World Smile Day is to preform an act of kindness or help one person to smile. Why not do both!?

HISTORY: Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts (New England represent!) created the smiley face in 1963. The State Mutual Life Assurance Company hired Harvey as a free lance artist to create a smiley face for use in improving company morale. During the next few years, the bright and cheerful smiley grew in popularity. It’s popularity grew slowly at first, then, it exploded in the 1970’s…FAR OUT!
