Staying true to form of being a day late and a dollar short, I bring to you World Humanitarian Day, celebrated globally on August 19th...so I'm a few days behind.
World Humanitarian Day, first commemorated in 2009, is a day to pay tribute to the men and women who have lost their lives working toward humanitarian causes around the world. Since its inception, every year has focused on a theme:
- 2010 - We are Humanitarian Workers: Focused on the achievements of aid workers in the field
- 2011 - People Helping People: Focused on inspiring the spirit of aid work in everyone
- 2012 - I Was Here: Focused on doing something good for someone else
- 2013 -The World Needs More _____: Everyone has an idea of what the world needs more of, this years campaign lets you fill in the blank.
Just because the day has come and gone doesn't mean the message being spread isn't any less important.
Who doesn't love kid President?
