"Not every special day of the year has presidential approval but one that does is White Cane Safety Day, which was first proclaimed in 1964 by President Lyndon B Johnson. The white cane is a mobility tool that gives independence by making it possible for blind and visually impaired people to safely move around on their own. The National Federation of the Blind supplies a long white cane free of charge to everyone in the USA with low vision or blindness. White Cane Safety Day is intended to make everyone aware of the significance of a white cane and to encourage people, especially motorists, to take extra care when they see someone with a white cane. It has also become a day on which the achievements of the blind and visually impaired are celebrated and offers the chance to educate and raise awareness of the blind and visually impaired." ^sPm - #sharpharmade Fr 'Days of the Year'. #whitecanesafetyday #whitecane #safety #whitecanesafety #cane #blind #visuallyimpaired #impaired #wp #fb #share #blog #tweet #twitter #pop #ig #insta #white #linkinbio #lpt #awareness #awesome #nationalfederationoftheblind #independence #buffer #bearyamazing . @Instagram @sharpharmade

Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Saturday October 15, 2016 is Sweetest Day. "Sweetest Day, and Valentine ’s Day, each only comes once a year. What’s a body to do, on this day? Well, you celebrate Sweetest Day of course! Like Valentine’s day this day is known for its distribution of sweets in heart shaped boxes, and a recognition of the love of candy. On October 8th, 1921, Cleveland Confectioners came together to create a new day to celebrate the people’s love of candy and each other. On the first celebration of this day 20,000 boxes of candy were distributed throughout the city, everyone from newsboys, old folks, the poor, and orphans were gifted with delicious treats to help make it the “Sweetest Day” of the year for them. From there the idea spread through big cities like New York and Detroit, expanding in popularity and importance as the years went on. Through various promotions, Sweetest Day has gone on to become a popular choice for charity drives, including organizations like the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children, starting as early as October 17, 1940. The simplest way to celebrate Sweetest Day is to indulge your sweet-tooth and buy your favorite treat. An even better idea is to share it with someone who loves it as much as you do! Bring in a box of treats for your co-workers, or surprise your sweetie with their favorite sugary indulgence. If you’re feeling truly ambitious, you can coordinate with a local charity to help do a sweets drive to generate money for them. Candy is always a popular item for charity drives, and if you contact the creator of these confectionery delights you can probably get them at a heavily discounted price for use in charity drives. Finally, you can just buy candy and distribute it like a reverse Halloween, handing out candy to friends, co-workers, and random people on the street to remind them to enjoy the Sweetest Day of the year." ^sPm - #sharpharmade Fr 'Days of the Year'. #sweetestday #sweetest #pseudovalentine #pseudo #pseudovalentinesday #linkinbio #lpt #sweet #wp #fb #ig #insta #share #tweet #twitter #follow #like #pop #awesome #celebrate #love #like #beautiful . @Instagram @sharpharmade
