Awareness Spotlight shines on…
USA Weekend and Points of Light sponsor MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY. This day is all about community service and how you can pitch in and help.
Our Furry Friends
MAKE A DOG’S DAY is brought to you by your friendly neighborhood Subaru car dealer. They want to remind us that you will certainly make a dog’s day by adopting instead of buying a new one. Or make your own dog’s day with an extra treat and belly rub.
NATIONAL COLOR DAY is just about that – color. What would this world be like without the blue skies, green grass, and the changing colors that happen this time of year?
INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY reminds us to use our inside voices. Sometimes, using all caps might be necessary to get a point across – but nobody likes a loud voice all of the time.
On Today’s Menu…
NATIONAL NUT DAY wants you to enjoy your favorite legume – peanut, cashew, macadamia, walnut, pistachio…you get the idea.
