World Hello Day Promotes World Peace

Remember the conflict between Israel and Egypt in 1973? It prompted the creation of World Hello Day. This day was begun as a message to world leaders to encourage communication over force, and has been observed by people in 180 countries.

Today is the 35th annual World Hello Day. Anyone can participate, and in fact, many people do.

I am very happy to know that your organisation is working for the promotion of world peace. -- Mother Teresa 1981
I wholeheartedly support your efforts for world peace and unity and wish you the best in your endeavors. -- Joe Paterno 1987
This simple campaign has worldwide importance -- keep it going. -- Whoopi Goldberg 1992

Read the full text of 80 letters by a variety of celebrities, entertainers, world leaders, and more!

Be sure to say "Hello" to at least ten people today -- demonstrate the importance of personal communication for preserving peace.
