Love is a friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.

History of Global Love Day

Global Love Day began through the Love Foundation, a non-profit organization that aims to bring unconditional love back into the world. The foundation began through its founder, Harold W. Becker, a humanitarian who has helped people since 1985 after his mother was diagnosed with cancer. Although he pursued a college career in business management and was good at it, he left the business industry to pursue his dream of living a joyful life by helping others achieve the same.

Harold Becker founded Global Love Day as a way to bring a positive perspective to what’s happening in the world around them. For the Love Foundation, it’s about bringing unconditional love to the common vision of how people perceive the world. The Love Foundation declared Global Love Day as something everyone could participate in since 2007, making sure that the message of love is spread to everyone. The Love Foundation encourage everyone to express love in the ways they know and by doing so they hope to change the way people view the world one step at a time.

How to Celebrate Global Love Day

The Love Foundation offers many ways for you to express love. According to their page, one suggestion is to just simply be love and let that be the focus of your awareness throughout the day. Another way is to host a gathering and connect with your community. You can host a party with your friends, volunteer for an hour at an orphanage, visit a retirement center, or donate items to a local shelter. You can also express love through social media by using #GlobalLoveDay to help others quickly connect to this special day.
