Everyone knows that Valentine's Day is on February 14, but did you also know that this year, it is also National No One Eats Alone Day and over 2,500 schools across the nation will be celebrating in all 50 states?!
National No One Eats Alone Day encourages children to sit together at lunchtime and make friends with new classmates. No one should eat alone on this day or any other day of the year!
As a special sweet treat, we have designed a 2020 social media campaign called #InspiredToInclude which kicks off on Saturday, February 1, that will inspire you to get into a happier way of including others by following the example of 14 wonderful people: some famous, some not, some young, and some just learning what it means to be inclusive.
Every day a new video will be released! We will all learn from each other!
You can find each new video posted daily on our website and on all of our social media platforms.
Please join us in spreading the word by sharing the #InspiredToInclude posts on social media and help create a world where every child is accepted, included, and valued by their peers!
And, if you are inspired, create your own video post telling us why you are inspired to include! Use the hashtag #InspiredToInclude, tag Beyond Differences and we will share your post!
Follow us on social media today and start sharing on February 1st!
Thanks for being a part of our movement to end social isolation and create a culture of belonging for everyone!
Director of National Programs
