Today is September 15, 2014 and it also happens to be International Dot Day. The day was named after the classic Peter H. Reynolds storybook The Dot. The book is available in English and many other languages. It shares the story of a girl who begins a journey of self-discovery after her teacher challenges her to “make her mark”.
International Dot Day was invented to encourage people of all ages to harness their creativity. The hope is for as many people as possible to join the growing global community of creativity champions and use their talents, gifts and energy to move the world to a better place.
