September 12, 2014 is the National Day of Encouragement in the United States.
It was started by the Encouragement Foundation at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas in 2007. The first proclamation for the Day of Encouragement was issued by Mayor Belinda LaForce of Searcy, Arkansas on August 22, 2007. Mike Beebe, the current Governor of Arkansas since 2007, made a proclamation for September 12, 2007 as the "State Day of Encouragement" for Arkansas. A U.S. Senator simple resolution designated September 12, 2011 as "National Day of Encouragement."
As we all need some encouragement from time to time, why don't we make every day a Day of Encouragement. Joe Grace pointed out five easy ways to celebrate National Day of Encouragement:
- Tell somebody "great job" today,
- High-fives, high-fives, high-fives,
- Call, email or text a friend or family member you haven't contact in a while,
- Help someone along with their goals,
- Smile more.
