Today, Sunday Nov 11th, National Days

There are three National days today that stand out to me.

  • International Day of the Girl Child! A few ways to join in on this international day is get in on events, or virtual events that improve the lives of girls all over the world. You can do things like become a mentor, donate supplies to schools, be inspired or inspire by talking about women leads in the present day or past history. You can simply share stories of women who inspire you, from teachers, authors, mothers, business owners, the list goes on. A little history about this day: in1955 the World Conference on Women arrived at Beijing China, nearly 30,000 people came from around the world. During the conference the attendees developed a comprehensive platform to help advance women's right around the world. In 2011, the United Nationals declared that this day, October 11th, as International Day of the Girl Child due to such great advocacy seen around the world.
  • National Sausage Pizza Day! Make sure to stop by your favorite local pizza place and grab a slice, or a pie, or sausage pizza to celebrate Sausage Pizza Day. Or you can make your own pizza at home with the family!
  • National Coming out Day! There are a few ways for you to celebrate National Coming Out Day! Attend a rally, in person or virtually, support a friend, a loved one, or family member coming out. Share your coming out story, if you have one, to help others as they are working through coming out. Ask questions and learn more about the LGBQT community! A little history about this day: In the year1988, Eichberg and Jean O'Leary, who created Coming out Day on the anniversary of the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights to show support for the LGBTQ community! Togethery they created this national day as a reminder that coming out is one of the most powerful basic tools.
