Bubble Gum Day
Date When Celebrated : first Friday in February
Today is Bubble Gum Day. On this day, kids bring 50 cents to school, and donate it to a good cause. In exchange, they can chew bubble gum in school on this day. The school selects in advance, what cause the donations will go to. Ruth Spiro, the creator, wanted to have a day where kids can simply participate in donating, without constantly selling things. She says that since its creation, Bubble Gum Day has become a sweet success!
Bubble Gum Day was originally established for schools. But, libraries, clubs and community groups can and do participate. Even businesses are encouraged to hold a Bubble Gum Day event.
The date of this event was established on the first Friday of February, rather than a set date. This is so it will occur on a school day. Some websites, who have not researched this day, erroneously report it on a fixed date.
We hope you have a successful fundraiser on Bubble Gum Day.
History and Origin of Bubble Gum Day:
Ruth Spiro is a writer, a childrens book author, and a bubble gum fan. She created this day in 2006. Her objective was to create a day where schools can do a fundraiser, without selling things.
Some sources erroneously report this as a "National" day. This is incorrect, as the creator has never referred to it as a national day.
