Friday 7 October 2016: World Smile day

In 1963 Harvey Ball created the Smiley Face and became a world-wide known commercial artist. That image went on to become the most recognizable symbol of good will and good cheer on the planet. As the years passed Harvey Ball became concerned about the over-commercialization of his symbol, and how its original meaning and intent had become lost in the constant repetition of the marketplace. Out of that concern came his idea for World Smile Day®. He thought that we, all of us, should devote one day each year to smiles and kind acts throughout the world. The smiley face knows no politics, no geography and no religion.


Inclusive Works participates in this day with its “Smile; it's that easy to change the World” film and get involved campaign


We have also made the following people Smile:
