World Smile Day

4 October

World Smile Day encourages people to spread kindness and make others smile.

This year, we want you to bring smiles throughout not only the day but throughout the year.

We have some amazing fundraising ideas which you can take part in which would help spread some smiles and raise some much needed funds for Once Upon a Smile.

Here are some ideas:

  • The classics always work! Ask everyone to donate a set amount to dress down for the day (or try dress up day too!). A great idea for work or school.
  • Our SMILE MILE of course! Designed originally as a school one-off activity it’s actually evolved into a wider event and is fun for all ages. Even workplaces now get involved and take part as it is a great lunchtime activity.
    Challenge yourself to do a mile a day, could be running, hopping, walking, cycling, swimming. Or it could be a one-off event for on the day-the magic is it is totally up to you!
  • Wear orange! Turns out Sidley our bear loves anything orange. Host an orange party, serving orange drinks and treats!

We are also happy to work with you on an idea to suit your setting or workplace. Please reach out and get in touch.
