National KidsDay

When it comes to special people in our lives, the first Sunday in August celebrates many of them. Not only is it Friendship Day and Sister's Day, it also is National KidsDay!

Launched in 1994 by children’s charity organization KidsPeace, the annual event celebrates and honors America’s children. Many parents are often overworked, underpaid and lead stressful and busy lives. Children are the most precious aspect of our lives, but in the hustle-and-bustle of daily life, children may feel left out. National KidsDay, observed on the first Sunday in August, encourages parents, grandparents, teachers and caregivers to take a break and spend more quality and meaningful time with America’s children.
