MORE INFORMATION HERE:
Mother’s Day was founded by Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia, PA in 1907 and Father’s Day founded by Mrs. John Dodd of Spokane, WA in 1910. Almost one hundred ten (110) years have gone by without honoring our siblings!
Claudia Evart, a native New Yorker, after losing both her only siblings, felt inspired to create Siblings Day Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) publicly supported volunteer organization. See our website, www.siblingsday.org for information about past work to get National Siblings Day established.
Beginning April 10, 2015, Siblings Day was #1 trending topic on social media for two consecutive days. Worldwide media outlets published and posted stories about Siblings Day which included blogs and TV and radio broadcasts. There was also an overwhelming response from the public, celebrities and politicians which lead to Siblings Day going viral and trending on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube and more recently on Google+ and Tumblr!.
Over the years, we have been working continually to spread the idea of Siblings Day and have been recognized by two past US Presidents (Clinton, 2000) and (Bush, 2008) and six cabinet members. We’ve also received gubernatorial proclamations from 49 states and recognition from many other politicians including Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney, NY Mayors; Manhattan borough President; celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, Olsen sisters, Beyoncé, Kardashians, Cindy Crawford; cultural institutions including children’s museums and zoos; universities and colleges, and more importantly America’s siblings. In furtherance of establishing this day, we have been involved in the creation of UN resolution for Siblings Day with the help of UN Estonian Ambassador, Sven Jürgenson and the President from the Republic of Estonia and look forward to discussions with other countries.
