4th November 2021

We celebrate World Hello Day every year on November 21st as a reminder that conflicts should be resolved through communication, not violence.

The McCormack brothers began World Hello Day in response to the Yom Kippur War between Israel and a coalition of Arab states led by Egypt and Syria.

They sent 1360 letters in 7 languages and asked as many world leaders as possible to participate and support this new holiday.

How to take part in #WorldHelloDay

On this day, people are encouraged to say "hello" to at least 10 people they encounter throughout the day, preferably strangers.

Another idea is to reach out to someone you haven't spoken to in a while, perhaps because of a conflict? This is a perfect opportunity to reconnect and make peace.

If both options sound a little too extroverted, why not take the time to learn how to say "hello" in a few languages?

World Hello Day is an opportunity to reach out to others, overcome cultural barriers, and end all conflicts, no matter where you come from.

We can only ever achieve a peaceful world if all of us work together!

So from everyone here at ILC, we would like to say a big Hello!!
