National Day of Hope is an annual American holiday dedicated to hope. Believing in the best is a unique psychological tool that allows you not to give up even in the hardest of times. As one famous saying goes, “Hope dies last,” and it’s the absolute truth! The holiday is celebrated every first Wednesday in April.
This holiday can be celebrated by all people who need to believe in the best today. However, according to the authors, National Day of Hope is dedicated to children who are in difficult situations. Perhaps they are facing domestic violence or are orphans. We can make a difference in their lives and give them hope!
The holiday was created by E. Fedderson and S. O’Meara. These people were the originators of the organization that today is called Childhelp. The main areas of activity are monitoring the rights and freedoms of children, as well as helping those in need. Homelessness, domestic violence, molestation, bullying and many other problems are just a partial list of the problems children may face. Therefore, the organization still has a lot of work to do, and National Day of Hope encourages people to unite their efforts and give children hope for a better future.
- Approximately 40% of adults were abused by parents or peers during their childhood years.
- The greatest number of problems is observed among children in low-income families. For example, domestic violence is registered there in 60% of cases.
- If a person loses hope, in 85% of cases he will not get out of a difficult situation. That’s the conclusion psychologists came up with.
How to celebrate
Support orphanages or help charities raise the money they need to treat children with serious illnesses. If you have children, spend more time with them on this day.
