National Freedom Day – February 1

Let Freedom Ring! National Freedom Day on Feb 1. was founded to celebrate the freedoms we enjoy as U.S. citizens. It commemorates the day in 1865 when President Abraham Lincoln signed the resolution which became the 13th Amendment, effectively ending slavery in the United States. Freedom is one of the founding principles of the United States of America and this day was envisioned as a way for all citizens to take a moment to appreciate the many freedoms we are afforded as citizens of this great country.

International Polar Bear Day – February 27

Polar bears are some of the coolest creatures on the planet, and they live in some of the coldest places on Earth. Celebrate these magnificent creatures with us on International Polar Bear Day on February 27, as we learn as much as we can about these magnificent mammals. The day was established by Polar Bears International, an organization devoted to preserving polar bears and the sea ice they depend on, to draw global attention to the plight of the polar bears.

National Day of Unplugging – March 3

Do you have multiple cell phones? Constantly Snapchatting every move and find it hard to get through a meaningful conversation without adding to your story? We increasingly miss out on the valuable moments of our lives as we pass the hours with our faces buried in our iPhones, documenting our every move through social media and shielding ourselves from the outside world, where real connections happen. If you notice these mannerisms in yourself – or your friends & family, it may be worth committing to the National Day of Unplugging. It is a 24 hour period – running from sundown to sundown which starts on March 3rd. Take this day to carve out precious time to unplug, relax, reflect, be active, visit the outdoors, and connect with loved ones.

National Hug a G.I. Day – March 4

March 4 is the only day on the calendar that’s also a military command — march forth! — so it’s only appropriate that this be the day that we celebrate the servicemen and servicewomen in our lives with National G.I. Day. Soldiers in the U.S. military — including members of the Army, Air Forces, and Marines — have been referred to as G.I.s since 1940, and today is the day that we celebrate everything they do for us with a big hug, either literal or metaphorical.

National Be Heard Day – March 7

Celebrated March 7, National Be Heard Day is observed across the country by small businesses... plus the 150 million people who work for these small companies, startups, and new enterprises. So do you want your business ideas heard? Are you the next Mark Zuckerberg but maybe no one knows it yet? Then launch that data-driven PR program and fire up that new content marketing system and let's demand to be heard!

International Women’s Day – March 8

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the historical, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also is a day of action in support of taking action against gender inequality around the world. We all know the world couldn't run without women (we mean, just listen to Beyoncé). This is the day to appreciate their efforts! Organizations large and small come together to show women just how valuable they are to today's society.
